"You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea."--Medgar Evers
My hero Medgar Evers was assassinated on June 12, 1963. It took more than 30 years to bring his killer to justice.
Today I am remembering Medgar and wish to express my gratitude to his widow Myrlie and their three children to let them know that Medgar is not forgotten.

You can also watch the excellent movie Mississippi Burning, starring Gene Hackman as the FBI agent who uncovered the truth, Whoopi Goldberg portraying Myrlie Evers, and Alec Baldwin enacting the role of the prosecutor who brought the assassin to justice.
