Product Description
This is a 14 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on the Civil Rights - Key Figures - James Meredith. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

Born in MS on June 25, 1933, James Meredith was raised on a farm with 9 siblings. He joined the military after high school and attended an all-black college before becoming the first black student at the University of Mississippi in 1962. After he graduated, he earned a law degree and became involved in politics. He continued to be active in civil rights and while living in Jackson, MS.

Evers worked to overturn segregation at the University of Mississippi and gain social justice and voting rights. He remained active in the Civil Rights Movement in the 1950s where he served as field secretary for the NAACP.

He continued the fight to gain admission for African Americans to the state-supported public University of Mississippi. He also worked on voting rights and registration, economic opportunity, access to public facilities, and other changes in the segregated society.
