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