Personal Quote:

[on making a change in Mississippi] At the moment, we don't have any suits pending. But we are doing our best to embarrass the whites to death. For a long time, they literally got away with murder. Now, when a Negro is mistreated, we try to tell the whole world about it. See more »


Medgar Evers was assassinated on June 12, 1963, only three weeks away from what would have been his 38th birthday on July 2. See more »
