Quitman, Miss. Civil rights icon, James Meredith visited the East Mississippi Regional Library in Quitman Wednesday to talk about his new book, 'A Mission from God'.
Meredith is traveling to every county in the state of Mississippi.
Clarke County makes the thirty-seventh county that he has visited. Meredith talked about the message he is trying to spread to a certain group of people in the state about the future of children.
"I think more than anywhere else in the world, black Christians in Mississippi know the Bible, and know the teachings of Jesus Christ," said Meredith. "All we have to do now is follow it in dealing with our children."
Meredith signed copies of his book for those who were in attendance.
