Ole Miss to be featured in ESPN 30 for 30 film

[ED: As Faulkner put it, "the past isn't dead, it isn't even past." Fifty years ago, the integration of Ole Miss, the riots surrounding it, and the last undefeated Ole Miss Rebel football team were all in Oxford. In October, one of ESPN's excellent "30 for 30" series of documentaries will look at Ole Miss then, and how the events of 1962 still resonate today.]

Ghosts of Ole Miss (Fritz Mitchell)

In 1962, the University of Mississippi campus erupted in violence over integration and swelled with pride over an unbeaten football team. Mississippi native Wright Thompson explores the tumultuous events that continue to shape the state 50 years later.

Tuesday, Oct. 30, 8 p.m. on ESPN

Not sure how I feel about this. At first, I'm excited that we'll be featured in one of the ESPN 30 for 30 films. Unfortunately, this is one of the darkest hours for our beloved university. I trust Wright Thompson to help shed some light on this sensitive subject.
