OXFORD, Miss. (AP) — In a Sept. 27 story on Attorney General Eric Holder's speech at the University of Mississippi, The Associated Press reported erroneously the date that riots occurred on the Ole Miss campus during the admission of James Meredith as the university's first black student. The year was 1962, not 1961.
