Updated: 3 years ago.

Host Michel Martin speaks with the award-winning journalist and with Vernon Jordan, the civil rights lawyer who fought for black students to attend classes at the university, about that historic event and its legacy. Copyright 2011 National Public Radio. To see more, visit http://www.npr.org/.
