    Yes, let us recognize and give all praise to those who have sacrificed so much to open some of the doors so adamantly closed against African Americans for so long. Fifty years ? Preceded by how many of oppression? And followed by how many years of continuing oppression. World, look and see what we at the University of Mississipi have done! When you use your considerable resources, academic and otherwise, toward actively dismantling systemic and structural racism, not only in Mississippi, but throughout the country, then let eyes be on Mississippi.
