Ole Miss Journalism School Could Be Renamed for Holly Springs Native

Chicot Memorial

OXFORD, MS (Ben Caxton) — More than 100 professors, staff and students at Ole Miss have signed a petition calling for the Meek School of Journalism and New Media to change its name. The effort comes following a Facebook post from Ed Meek that many viewed as racist. Meek has also asked that his name be removed and some have suggested naming the school after Ida B. Wells, a native of Holly Springs, Mississippi who is considered a pioneer of investigative journalism.
