Ole Miss

There were many powerful forces in place, dating back to slavery, that limited options for black people in the segregated Deep South. Mississippi was the last bastion of the confederacy in 1962, and Ole Miss was its Fort Fisher.  Even the name ‘Ole Miss' was a term slaves used to refer to the wife of a plantation owner.

The Minority Voice

There is no biblical or historical record of what happened to Barabbas after he was let go, but according to one tradition, on the day he was released, he went to Golgotha and watched Jesus die on the cross.  I don’t know whatever became of the defendant that we released, but I hope that he used the opportunity that we gave him to become a better person.
