Yes, to the trial.

No, to the funeral train.

While I can't recall reading that he met the President, I'll guess Weichmann

So when is this "Old Enough To Know Better" supposed to kick in?

Yes, Gene! Indeed these are the words of Louis Weichmann. Also, kudos to Eva who really narrowed it down with her questions.

Gene, it is in his book - p. 6.

What event was the first in Jacksonville, FL, that blacks and whites (I guess my wording isn't pc, no offensé intended) could attend without segregation?

RE: Extra Credit Questions
Another good idea, but nope.

Hint: Mike was a bit closer as for the kind of event. No sports event though.

RE: Extra Credit Questions
Another good guess, Susan, but it was no political event!
Hint #3: It was a mass event!
Hint #4: A ticket was required. It took place at Gator Bowl.

RE: Extra Credit Questions
No idea or further questions to approach?
Hint #5: It was in 1964.
(Just to clarify - the "music event" is to be determined more precisely!)

Given the time and the clues, I would say it was a Beatles concert.

RE: Extra Credit Questions
Correctly concluded, Rob!
The concert took place on September 11, 1964 during their first US tour. When the Beatles got to know that the promoters planned to have a segregated audience, John Lennon said:
“We never play to segregated audiences, and we aren’t going to start now. I’d sooner lose our appearance money.” The stadium was sold out, so the promoters obliged. In all contacts then they had a passage to "not be required to perform in front of a segregated audience".
The entire story here including videos is well worth reading and checking out:

Rob, you win a trip to Jacksonville in a yellow submarine!
