Walk Against Fear: James Meredith

This timely documentary is named after James Meredith’s 1966 Walk Against Fear, in which he set out to show a Black man could walk peace- fully in Mississippi. He was shot on the second day. What really sets this film apart is archival footage coupled with a rare one-on-one interview with Meredith, the first Black man to enroll at the University of Mississippi.
