This historical documentary film tells the story of Robert F. Kennedy’s historic visit to the University of Mississippi in 1966 and the behind-the-scenes student activism that made it possible. Only four years after the violence surrounding James Meredith’s admittance to the university as its first African American student—and amid a controversial “Speaker Ban” imposed by the legislature and the Institutions of Higher Learning board on Mississippi’s college campuses—a small, interracial group of forward-thinking students at “Ole Miss” devised a plan to get around the Speaker Ban and host a speech by RFK.
Pre-Recorded Q&A with director Mary Blessey to follow.
