Abstract

A federal judge and a prominent Mississippi lawyer discuss their journeys through the segregationist 1960s at the Overby Center for Southern Journalism and Politics.

Triggering the event is the publication of “Won Over,” written by William Alsup, now a U.S. district judge in San Francisco. He will be joined by high school and college classmate Danny Cupit and U.S. District Judge Thelton Henderson of San Francisco, a former civil rights lawyer for the U.S. Justice Department in the 1960s. Henderson wrote the forward for Alsup’s book.

The panel is interviewed by Charles Overby, chairman of the Overby Center, and a former classmate of Alsup and Cupit at Jackson Provine High School. Alsup and Cupit graduated from Mississippi State University.
