Meredith, the first black student to attend the University of Mississippi after integration, says he doesn't plan to participate in the university's commemoration of his history-making enrollment 50 years ago, which prompted a state-federal standoff, sparked deadly mob violence and ultimately ended the university's official policy of racial segregation.
