Rob, this was fascinating and entertaining, and for more than just Matt’s amazing stories. This episode inspired me to look up James Meredith. Growing up where I did, I only heard about the parallel desegregation effort at the University of Alabama (in Tuscaloosa, natch). In our version, George Wallace, not Ross Barnett, played the role of the staunchly segregationist governor. Anyway, Mr. Meredith’s story is fascinating. He is truly an iconoclast, and as one biographer called him, a warrior. Next time I’m educating some Soldier or former Soldier on why the Air Force is such an outstanding service, I will include fellow former Airman James Meredith as one of my arguments. Thank you!
Also, Wikipedia says there were more than 500 armed federal officers in Oxford when Mr. Meredith was finally able to enroll. I know no one asked me, but THAT, ladies and gentlemen, is how you prepare for a riot.
That was a beautiful show! I was driving UP TO OXFORD MS while listening to it. An eerie feeling but Rob’s voice can calm a storm.
