A statue of Medgar Evers stands a few blocks from his neighborhood home, where his life was suddenly taken. On June 12th, 1963 his life ended tragically, because of his intricate involvement with the NAACP and helping people register to vote. This week his life’s work will be celebrated as part of the 50th anniversary of his death.
