James Meredith

FILE – In this Oct. 2, 1962 photo provided by the University of Mississippi, James Meredith, right, attends class for the first time in Peabody Hall on The University of Mississippi campus, in Oxford, Miss. Meredith, the first black student to attend the University of Mississippi after integration, says he doesn’t plan to participate in the university’s commemoration of his history-making enrollment 50 years ago, which prompted a state-federal standoff, sparked deadly mob violence and ultimately ended the university’s official policy of racial segregation.
