In the fall of 1962, James Meredith risked his life when he successfully applied the laws of integration and became the first black student at the University of Mississippi, a pivotal moment in the civil rights movement.

Now, for the first time, James Meredith has published the books he wrote about the civil rights struggle and his participation in it. These powerful narratives are a must-read for anyone who wants to study and understand the racial situation in America during the 1960's.
 

Three Years in Mississippi

"Seldom is a piece of violent history so dispassionately dissected by one of its participants as it has been by James Meredith in this three-years-later study of his breakthrough at the University of Mississippi. Part report and part legal brief, part manifesto, part tract, it is a valuable and fascinating account."
