THIS WILL BE TWENTY-FOUR.
I saw James Meredith as a man with a mission uh, one who felt that uh, his pursuit of uh, breaking down the racial uh, barriers at Old Miss, uh, would do two things. One, that it would help uh, open the door for others to follow him, but equally important, that uh, he would be elevated, if you will, into the pages uh, of history. It was uh, two-pronged, uh, the good for himself and, I mean the good for others; but also, a kind of, almost self-serving thing uh, to assure him, a place uh, in history. And I don't think there's anything wrong with that but uh, James sometimes, could carry himself in a way where he floated a few feet above uh, the common man. And perhaps one has to have that kind of um, personality to be able to, to survive uh, what, what he did.
TAKE TWENTY-FOUR, CORRECTION, TAKE TWENTY-FIVE.
