Editorial Reviews

Review

This is a remarkable commentary on the life and career of an exceptional man who has always marched to his own drumbeat. James Meredith remains an enigma to many, but all of us have been compelled to admire his courage and independence. This volume represents a fascinating insight not only into the identity of this intriguing human being but also into many of the historic events of the stormy times in which he lived. It is an important addition to our understanding of our conflicted past but just as importantly to the recognition of our common humanity.

Blurb by William F. Winter, Miss Gov (1980-1984)

As piercing and as lasting as the shotgun pellets which wounded him in 1966, this straight forward account of Mississippi's most heralded living freedom fighter is presented without excuse or pause by his niece, Meredith, who is herself a heroine in the war against injustice.

Alice Thomas-Tisdale, Publisher, Jackson Advocate

James Meredith: Warrior and the America That Created Him is a wonderful and much needed book on one of my personal history makers. Thank you for providing such an insightful portrait of your uncle, civil rights icon James H. Meredith. Your book will provide a positive documentation of the man and that crucial period of American History. Congratulations on a job well done, I strongly endorse and encourage everyone to read your book.
