In Sept. 1962, James Meredith attempted to become the first African Amer. student to matriculate at the segregated Univ. of Miss., the result was chaos. Pres. Kennedy intervened, forcing Gov.

Here is the story of deseg. at Ole Miss; the effort by Martin Luther King Jr. to dismantle Jim Crow in Birm., AL; the March on Wash.; the aftermath of the bombing that killed 4 girls in Sept. 1963; & other key moments in the civil rights movement, but from the perspective of the WH. Includes actual transcripts of the secret recordings that Pres. Kennedy & Johnson made.
