Do You Know Your Black History??

Medgar Evers (1925-1963), was the field secretary for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). He was also a civil/human rights activist, his death prompted President John Kennedy to ask Congress for a comprehensive civil-rights bill, which President Lyndon Johnson signed into law the following year. Mr. Evers was one of the first major civil rights leaders to be assassinated. He was only 37 years old when he was shot and killed in the driveway of his home.
