Ed Meek’s photographic record of the shattering of segregation in Mississippi and the turmoil at Ole Miss surrounding James Meredith’s admission to the school has been preserved in a new book. Meek and others who witnessed that history will recall the events on the 53rd anniversary of the night the campus became a bloody battleground. Dr. Meek was on hand at the Overby Center for Southern Journalism and Politics for a power-point display of many of his photographs and was joined by former Gov. William Winter and Overby Fellow Curtis Wilkie to talk about the night that altered the history of the University of Mississippi.
