I want you to watch the ESPN 30 for 30 that Wright Thompson made about the integration of Ole Miss in the fall of 1962. It’s told from the perspective of a native son looking back on a dark past, set against the backdrop of a football team with national championship aspirations.
It’s available on Netflix. Just search GHOSTS OF OLE MISS. I would suggest watching it on Netflix because of the quality. you can also check it out in the link below.
ASSIGNMENT: I want your reaction to seeing what happened when the symbol of the Old South was integrated. Be honest and forthright. (3/4 to 1pg). I’m still working through my own opinions.
