THURS., NOV. 22 – TBJ #622 – WHO WAS MEDGAR EVERS?: In the early 1950s times were hard for many Black Americans in the old South. Rigid segregation was the rule of the day and African Americans found themselves on the periphery of American life.

However, Medgar Evers became one of the many casualties of the civil rights struggle.
