Meridian, Miss. A special gathering took place at Meridian's Western Sizzlin Steakhouse on Friday afternoon.

Four of the original six men and women who integrated Meridian Community College back in 1964 gathered to remember the challenges they overcame and the friendships they formed during college.

"We know what each other had to endure at the time when we were students at MCC and I have not seen two of my classmates since we left MCC, which was about 49 years ago, " Hazel Moore said.

MCC was formerly known as Meridian Junior College.
