Abstract

The role of journalists during the crisis surrounding the integration of James Meredith at The University of Mississippi in 1962. The program is built around journalism professor Kathleen Wickham’s new book, “We Believed We Were Immortal,” and includes a short film about the murder of reporter Paul Guihard during the all-night riot – the only fatality suffered among journalists who covered the civil rights movement through the 1960s – as well as a conversation between three well-known figures at Ole Miss. Wickham is joined in the discussion by Don Cole, vice chancellor for academic affairs, and Douglass Sullivan-Gonzales, dean of the Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College, who serves as moderator.
