JAMES MEREDITH — a 1960s Civil Rights icon. James courageously opened up Ole Miss University to Black students in 1962, surrounded by 3,000 rioters who hated him — but protected by the National Guard. Four years later he was later shot by a sniper and lived to talk about it.

Learn about James directly from the BH365 textbook. By the way, he studied our textbook with a critical eye.

At the end of the video, watch 88 year old James Meredith hold up our Black History 365 textbook and tell you what he actually thinks of what we have written.

You just might be surprised!!!!

BH365 would be a unique gift for the ones you love —
