Civil rights pioneer James Meredith says he has changed his feelings toward the statue of him on the Oxford campus of the University of Mississippi, now thinking it’s not such a bad thing.
The Daily Mississippian, the university newspaper, reports Meredith expressed his feelings over the weekend while attending a Black Alumni Reunion on the Ole Miss campus in Oxford.
“This is really a time for change in me and in what I’m going to do,” the newspaper reported Meredith saying during the event.
