New Miss Hat & James Meredith
The story behind the "New Miss" hat worn and endorsed by James H. Meredith.
Pastor Robert West gifted James H. Meredith, his first "New Miss" baseball hat over a year ago. Meredith was the first black man to attend the University of Ole Miss in 1962, after a long hard fought legal battle. Pastor West said said "The day James Meredith stepped onto the campus of The University of Mississippi it was no longer "Ole Miss". It ceased to exist. It was now "New Miss" and Meredith should never promote the Old Miss. " To learn more visit https://suzialtmanphotos.photoshelter.com/gallery/JamesMeredith-NewMiss-Hat-PastorWestBLM/G0000ctbqk4FN0NE/
