Sherwood Ross on James Meredith

Sherwood Ross on James Meredith

Our monthly columnist Sherwood Ross was on the “March Against Fear” with James Meredith. I’ve created an excerpt from our show on December 4, 2014 so that more people can get a chance to hear this wonderful interview about that event.

Sherwood’s vivid description of the march where James Meredith was shot was stunning. He was there, marching with him. He talked about the great job the Tennessee police had done the night before, protecting the controversial marchers. He talked about the lack of police protection the day Meredith was shot; it was almost as if the cops wanted it to happen.
