Although we’re still in production, I wanted to share the title of Media and Documentary Projects new documentary, REBELS: James Meredith & The Integration of Ole Miss. Directed by Matthew Graves.
The hour long film tells the story of the events leading up to James Meredith’s historic integration of the University of Mississippi and the violence that rocked the campus on the night of September 30, 1962. With stories from students, faculty, staff, residents, U.S. Marshals, FBI Agents, and James Meredith himself, we examine one of great turning points in the history of civil rights in this country. REBELS will screen free to the public on the 50th anniversary of the integration, Sunday, September 30th at 8pm in the Gertrude C. Ford Center for the Performing Arts at Ole Miss. In addition, the film will be televised on Mississippi Public Broadcasting Thursday, September 26th at 8pm. For more information, visit 1962rebels.com.
