      EVENT DETAILS
      The Murder of Medgar Evers (Lecture)

      Medgar Evers, a brave Civil Rights leader, was assassinated in the driveway of his home, murdered by a Klan leader bent on blood. What offense had Evers committed? He was trying to register African Americans to vote in Mississippi in 1963. His murderer was quickly identified - but lived as a free man for thirty years until an unstoppable wife, a dogged newspaperman and a brilliant prosecutor managed to get the case reopened. This presentation is filled with inside information on the thrilling trial, amazing anecdotes and a heavy dose of drama. History will come alive as you witness whether it is ever too late to do the right thing.
