Overby Center Panel: Meredith & the Media

Invitation: Panel of distinguished journalists discuss how media coverage of the '62 riot shaped the public's view of Ole Miss both then and since.


As the entire University of Mississippi campus celebrates the sixtieth anniversary of James Meredith’s 1962 integration of the school, the Overby Center will host a panel of distinguished journalists on Tuesday, Sept. 27, to discuss, “Meredith & the Media: Legacy of a Riot.” Sidna Brower Mitchell, Kathleen WIckham and Curtis Wilkie will discuss the media’s role both during and after the ensuing riot, and how that event has shaped the public’s view of Ole Miss in the decades since. C-SPAN’s Jesse Holland will moderate.
