:facepalm: Meredith was a paradox though





Shot 55 years ago while marching against racism, James Meredith reminds us that powerful movements can include those with very different ideas


But Meredith? After the march, he faded from view. He did not join any of the major civil rights organizations. His multiple runs for office failed, as did numerous business ventures. By the late 1980s, he seemed to court shock value: He worked for archconservative North Carolina Sen. Jesse Helms, and then endorsed Louisiana politician David Duke, a former grand wizard in the Ku Klux Klan.
