Therefore, President Kennedy mobilized the National Guard and sent federal troops to the campus. Meredith registered the next day and attended his first class, and segregation ended at the “Ole Miss”.

Two parts that stood out to me was the story of effects of Martin Luther King Jr’s assassination on black children and the effects society has on people who are transgender. Andrea Jenkins referred to a story of how the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. had on the education of black children. After the assassination, she and other black students were sent home on that day and were not allowed back. This fits well with Lorber’s examination of Multiethnic / Multiracial Feminism.
