CHAPEL HILL-This graduation weekend in Chapel Hill is also a time for class reunions. The class of 1963 will host its 50th class reunion, always a milestone of sorts. James Reston Jr., then a Morehead Scholar, now a famous writer and author of 13 books, will be talking to one of the reunion sessions this weekend about the civil rights struggle in which he participated as a student from 1959 to 1963.

I asked James Reston to share his recollections of that time for us.
