The Assassination Of Medgar Evers – A Hero Silenced – Extra History

The Assassination of Medgar Evers – A Hero Silenced – Extra History

What is it?

Here is the description for this video:

Medgar Evers was, like many who came after him, a civil rights leader who was murdered for speaking up. But while he might not be as well known as Martin Luther King Jr. or Malcolm X, he’s no less vital to the history of the civil rights movement and is especially noted for his work with the NAACP and tearing down segregation within schools. And his tragic death would expose how deep the corrupted root of racism went in the system, when his killer would not be brought to justice until 30 years later.

My Thoughts

It is a shame that I did not know about Medgar Evers or his story until now, more people need to know about history like this.

The end,
