  • Description

    JAMES MEREDITH, THE 30-YEAR-OLD AMERICAN NEGRO STUDENT WHO HELPED BRING ABOUT THE INTEGRATION OF THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSISSIPPI, IS NOW AT ANOTHER UNIVERSITY -- IN NIGERIA.

    HE HAS BEGUN STUDIES AT THE UNIVERSITY OF IBADAN FOR A 3-YEAR POST GRADUATE COURSE ON GOVERNMENT.

    THE UNIVERSITY INVITED HIM THERE SOME TIME AGO AFTER HE HAD SAID HE DID NOT AGREE WITH SOME OF THE POLICIES OF LEADING NEGRO GROUPS IN AMERICA.

    MR. MEREDITH BECAME THE FIRST NEGRO GRADUATE IN THE 115-YEAR HISTORY OF MISSISSIPPI UNIVERSITY LAST YEAR.

    HE THEN RECEIVED HIS BACHELOR OF ARTS DEGREE IN POLITICAL SCIENCE, BUT HIS CONTINUED ATTENDANCE AT THE UNIVERSITY WAS MADE POSSIBLE ONLY UNDER AMERICAN FEDERAL COURT ORDERS SUPPORTED BY FEDERAL TROOPS.
