Where We Come From

In October, 1962, a man named James Meredith integrated the all-white University of Mississippi amidst tear gas and riots. The filmmaker's father, a member of the school’s student council, silently stood his ground to keep Meredith out. President John F. Kennedy sent government troops down to the University campus and forced James Meredith’s integration. He graduated from the University in 1964 as the school’s first black student. Where We Come From is a film and interactive campaign that examines belief in equality and the links to family.
