"Two African-American journalists who covered the events of the Civil rights movement in the fifties and sixties return to the deep South where it all took place. The journalists are Dorothy Gilliam, who later became first female African American reporter at The Washington Post, and Ernest Withers, renowned photographer whose photos were published in the black press, The Washington Post, and The New York Times. Their journey brings back memories of those turbulent times. They travel to Memphis, Little Rock, Oxford, Jackson and the Mississippi Delta. Along the way they stop to meet with Minniejean Brown Trickey, one of The Little Rock Nine, and James Meredith, the first African- American to attend The University of Mississippi. Symbolic of the progress made is that today the travelers stay at the Peabody Hotel, from which they would have been barred back then. Photographs, newspaper clips and eyewitness accounts brings the heroic struggle alive, a struggle in which these two courageous journalists participated and recorded for posterity."--Original container

A mission from God : a memoir and challenge for America by James Meredith( Book )

3 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"I am not a civil rights hero. I am a warrior, and I am on a mission from God." 'James Meredith James Meredith engineered two of the most epic events of the American civil rights era: the desegregation of the University of Mississippi in 1962, which helped open the doors of education to all Americans; and the March Against Fear in 1966, which helped open the floodgates of voter registration in the South. Part memoir, part manifesto, A Mission from God is James Meredith's look back at his courageous and action-packed life and his challenge to America to address the most critical issue of our day: how to educate and uplift the millions of black and white Americans who remain locked in the chains of poverty by improving our public education system. Born on a small farm in Mississippi, Meredith returned home in 1960 after nine years in the U.S. Air Force, with a master plan to shatter the system of state terror and white supremacy in America. He waged a fourteen-month legal campaign to force the state of Mississippi to honor his rights as an American citizen and admit him to the University of Mississippi. He fought the case all the way to the Supreme Court and won. Meredith endured months of death threats, daily verbal abuse, and round-the-clock protection from federal marshals and thousands of troops to became the first black graduate of the University of Mississippi in 1963. In 1966 he was shot by a sniper on the second day of his "Walk Against Fear" to inspire voter registration in Mississippi. Though Meredith never allied with traditional civil rights groups, leaders of civil rights organizations flocked to help him complete the march, one of the last great marches of the civil rights era. Decades later, Meredith says, "Now it is time for our next great mission from God. ... You and I have a divine responsibility to transform America."

American heroes & heroines : Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A combination of costumed re-enactments and archival footage of the civil rights movement shows how our country₂s foremost civil rights leader transformed race relations in America. The program first shows young Martin as a child in Atlanta, where he experiences racial discrimination. When the mother of two of his friends says he can no longer play with her children, Martin₂s mother explains why. Martin also is seen being denied access to swimming pools, restaurants and other public places. But he is an excellent student, sharpens his speaking skills, and graduates from high school two years early. He is then seen at Morehouse College, where he studies philosophy and comes to believe that love is the best way to fight discrimination. The next part of the program shows Dr. King as a minister in Montgomery, Alabama. There, Dr. King becomes a major force in the Montgomery bus strike, which thrusts him into the national spotlight. Dr. King is then seen planning and leading demonstrations against school segregation and promoting the opening of restaurants to people of all races. He is also seen working to convince congress to pass fair housing laws. The program ends as Dr. King gives his ₃I Have a Dream₄ speech and as he receives the 1964 Nobel Peace Prize."--Distributor's website (
