Description: In celebration of Women's History Month, meet author Meredith Coleman McGee, also an acquisition editor and entrepreneur. She will discuss her book James Meredith: Warrior and the America that Created him, a biography about her uncle, Civil Rights icon James H. Meredith. Mr. Meredith is known in part as the first African-American student admitted to the University of Mississippi on September 30, 1962. The book examines Meredith's early life, his actions that resulted in the integration of Ole Miss; his 1966 'March Against Fear,' during which he was shot by a shotgun-wielding sniper, and voting rights stories from his peers during the Civil Rights era. This title is emerging as a Popular Culture/Ethnic Studies required reading on the college level. Reservations required. Adults.
