60 YEARS OF INTEGRATiON, 1962-2022

On October 1, 1962, The University of Mississippi was officially integrated with the enrollment of its first African American student Mr. James Meredith. Through his bravery and perseverance, Meredith became an inspirational leader of the American Civil rights Movement. A statue of James Meredith, erected adjacent to The Lyceum in 2006, now commemorates the integration of The University of Mississippi.
