Author Event: Kathleen W. Wickham – We Believed We Were Immortal
Sunday, October 1 @ 2:00pm
On the 55th anniversary of the 1962 crisis at Ole Miss, author Kathleen Wickham traces the footsteps of twelve American journalists and examines the unsolved murder of Paul Guihard, a French reporter, the only journalist killed during the civil rights movement.
In We Believed We Were Immortal: Twelve Reporters Who Covered the 1962 Integration Crisis at Ole Miss, Wickham details the challenges faced by these journalists: and how they managed to overcome beatings, snipers, and a rogue governor to file the reports which are included here.
“Here are flesh-and-blood reporters,” writes Jerry Mitchell of the Clarion-Ledger, “whose dispatches from the war-torn University of Mississippi campus remind us what real journalism looks like and why we need it now more than ever.”
About the author: Kathleen Wickham, professor of journalism at the University of Mississippi, previously worked as a newspaper reporter in her native New Jersey. She was drawn to the story of Paul Guihard as a symbol of the commitment and courage of the 300-plus journalists who covered the 1962 integration riot.
