Author and former journalist Ed Meek is joined by fellow journalist, historian and University of Mississippi Professor Curtis Wilkie to talk about the tumultuous 60’s when James Meredith became the first African American to enroll at Ole Miss. The event sparked dangerous campus riots, captured in Meek’s photographs and compiled in his book, “RIOT: Witness to Anger and Change.”
