Ole miss coloring pages for free

Ole Miss was a center of activity during the American civil rights movement when a race riot erupted in 1962 following the attempted admission of James Meredith, an African-American, to the segregated campus. While the university was integrated that year, the use of Confederate symbols and motifs has remained a controversial aspect of the school’s identity and culture. In response the university has taken measures to rebrand its image, including effectively banning the display of Confederate flags in Vaught-Hemingway Stadium in 1997, officially abandoning the Colonel Reb mascot in 2003, and removing “Dixie” from the Pride of the South marching band’s repertoire in 2016. In 2018, following a racially charged rant on social media by an alumnus and academic building namesake, former Chancellor Jeffrey Vitter reaffirmed the university’s commitment to “honest and open dialogue about its history”, and in making its campuses “more welcoming and inclusive”.
