Mississippi Messiah
77-minutes
Civil rights legend James Meredith never fit in – not as the first Black person to attend the University of Mississippi, not surrounded by fellow activists on the Meredith March, not working for ultraconservative Jesse Helms or stumping for ex-Klansman David Duke. “Mississippi Messiah” is a nuanced exploration of Meredith’s complicated life as a public figure.

Mississippi Messiah

Civil rights icon James Meredith never fit in – not as the first Black student at the University of Mississippi, not as a civil rights leader on the Meredith March, and certainly not while endorsing ex-Klansman David Duke. MISSISSIPPI MESSIAH is a nuanced examination of Meredith’s complicated life as a public figure.
