Freedom Trail Honors Meredith

OXFORD - James Meredith was honored Friday with a Mississippi Freedom Trail marker near the University of Mississippi Lyceum.

This weekend marks the 50th anniversary of the deadly riot that surrounded the Kosciusko native's admission as Ole Miss' first black student. The marker's unveiling is one of many events highlighting that history.
