Four years later, as Meredith led a “March Against Fear” to promote black voter registration, he was wounded by a gunman, a moment captured in an iconic photograph. What followed was one of the central dramas of the civil rights era. Mon, 14 Jul 2014 13:51:40 +0000 Dan Rodricks & Mike Himowitz 502118 at http://wypr.org Remembering James Meredith
