ESPN's new 30 for 30 titled The Ghosts of Ole Miss will be another extraordinary chapter in the network's amazing documentary series. 

This story is about the 1962 football season at Ole Miss, which included many moments that those who witnessed them will never forget. 

James Meredith became the first African-American student to ever attend Ole Miss in 1962, and also was the first African-American football player in the program's history.

When he became the first African-American student to attend the school, violence broke out on campus, and the situation escalated to the point where the government had to send the military to the school 

The 1962 Ole Miss team is the most recent undefeated squad in the school's history, but the events that happened away from the playing field during this season is what many people remember about this period of the school's history. 

The Civil Rights movement was at the forefront of America during this time, and this documentary does a great job showing the impact it had on Ole Miss in 1962. 

This is a 30 for 30 you cannot afford to miss. It's a powerful story and is well directed by Fritz Mitchell. 

The second season of 30 for 30 has included many fascinating stories, and Tuesday's debut of The Ghosts of Ole Miss will be another episode that sports fans would be smart to watch. 

Let's look at the information you need to watch this compelling story.
