Four years after the historic enrollment of James Meredith, student activists at Ole Miss devise a plan to defy the campus' speaker-ban in 1966 by inviting Robert F. Kennedy, who reveals the truth about back-room politics, the belief-systems of those holding the highest power, and how campus-activism shapes the future of civil rights and all those who bear witness.
