AG Holder at Ole Miss : ‘Challenge nation to aim higher’

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder Jr. told a University of Mississippi audience that James Meredith’s breaking of the color barrier was “an inflection point” in the nation’s pursuit of justice.

He added that much work came ahead of it and much more still follows it.

“There’s no question that this university’s integration marked a significant moment and a tangible step forward in the long march for civil rights,” said Holder, who was the keynote speaker for the Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College’s Fall Convocation.
