Authors challenge Tunica audience
James Meredith has been called a civil rights hero, a visionary, a loner and a maverick, but what he really wants to be known as is a man on a mission from God.
Throughout his adult life, Meredith, now 80, has challenged his home state of Mississippi, first winning a lawsuit to gain admission to the University of Mississippi in the early 1960s, the first black student in the school’s history. Then he launched a 1966 march to break down fear in the black community and promote voter registration.
