    try the Univeristy of Louisiana in Lafayette. It was the first previously all white school in the South that substantially  integrated after Brown vs. Board of Education. It happened only months after the decision in 1954 and and, unlike many schools including Ole Miss, the event was so free of incident that no one in the national media even noticed. It was also the first school in the old south to integrate its athletic program which happened during the mid sixties, if memory serves, at a time when the rest of the south was still struggling to integrate academically. It has always been welcoming of minority athletes.
