Autobiography of Medgar Evers: A Hero’s Life and Legacy Revealed Through His Writings, Letters, and Speeches
Myrlie Evers-Williams (ed); Manning Marable (ed)
The American civil rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s was spurred by innumerable heroes. Few individual heroes embodied this selfless sacrifice and silent struggle better than Medgar Wiley Evers. The NAACP’s first field secretary in Mississippi, Evers is today remembered more for his brutal assassination at the hands of white supremacists in 1963, and his widow’s long struggle to bring his murderer to justice, than he is for his orations, ideas, or achievements. This collection of Evers’ papers, letters, and essays brings Evers’ story to life for a new generation. “Recounts how a man of the South rose through the ranks of his homeland’s freedom fighters, working to establish NAACP chapters throughout the Mississippi Delta region.” Photos.
