After I started doing interviews for Yazoo Revisited and had completed Drawing on a Dream, I was approached by Mississippi Public Broadcasting about producing a piece on the 50th anniversary of James Meredith's integration of the University of Mississippi in 1962. Integrating Ole Miss: James Meredith and Beyond aired on MPB in September 2012. It has already received a special recognition award from the Mississippi Humanities Council, as well as a Telly Award. We find out in May if it will be nominated for a regional Emmy. You can stream it from the MPB site at the above link. Be sure to also check out some of the extras mini-edits and the extended interviews.
