Before this day is over let’s remember Medger Evers who sacrificed his life for a larger idea, a spiritual quest; “all men are created equal”, I remember the day he was shot and killed in front of his home, his wife and children just steps away. This cruel story always makes me question humanity, every single time.  @life

Remembering the people's leader Medgar Evers of the NAACP who was assassinated June 12, 1963 in his driveway for his organizing to destroy apartheid in america!  They've made his house a monument but I am sure he would more appreciate the destruction of injustice and brutality in america, the world! Capitalism has no conscience. Get organized!

Civil rights activists, family man, and friend #Medgar #Evers was #assassinated in his driveway on July 12, 1963. While serving as the Field Secretary for the #NAACP he resisted segregation and white supremacy. He spoke out against the state sponsored and mob violence that many blacks and young people endured. His spirit and feet to the ground is a part of the journey I am on. We honor you Medgar. #jamesbaldwin #medgarevers @comingtothetable #CTTT

Three days ago marks the anniversary of the assassination of civil rights leader #MedgarEvers, a WWII veteran and true patriot in every sense of the word. Medgar Evers was known for his tireless efforts to secure voting rights and access to public facilities for all. 
These seem like such elementary rights today, and yet painfully we watched our Supreme Court side with (key electoral state) Ohio’s attempt to take the right to vote away from people. In 2018. 
I wish that America’s parties were divided by a difference in ideas around how to make the country better for everyone. Instead we’re in a battle over a return to the past and the darker times of our history. 
Medgar Evers was shot in his own driveway while his family was home. His children were safe only because he had taught them what to do should their house be fired upon.

Yet it’s important not only to remember but to know our living history:

The man who killed Evers was a member of the White Citizens’ Council, a group based on white supremacy. 
The successor organization to the White Citizens' Councils is the St. Louis-based Council of Conservative Citizens, founded in 1985 to continue collaborations between Ku Klux Klan and white supremacist political agendas in the United States. Republican politician and past Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott of Mississippi was a member. North Carolina Senator Jesse Helms and Georgia Congressman Bob Barr were both strong supporters of the Council of Conservative Citizens. 
Dylann Roof, the perpetrator responsible for the murder of nine Emanuel AME church members in Charleston in 2015, espoused Council of Conservative Citizens rhetoric in a manifesto. 
Remembering and paying homage to those like Medgar Evers who gave their lives for our rights means staying informed, remaining vigilant and becoming active.

#medgarevers and my Uncle Kenny were friends. In footage of Medgar you can see him sitting in the #bg 
He was a teacher and I believe neighbor of his. Amzie Moore lived a few blocks away. The #amziemoore
house was a major gathering place during the movement in Cleveland. My maternal grandmother Eliza is buried there.

"Medgar was a happy man with a rich smile and a warmth that touched many people. He was never too busy to listen or too tired to help. But beneath that gentle sympathy lay strength that could not be intimidated. Lord knows, enough people tried. But it never worked and that, I suppose, is why they killed him." - Myrlie Evers, LIFE magazine, June 28, 1963

Such a meaningful gallery talk with @jspann4 and artist Jason Bouldin about the life and work of Medgar Evers. His portrait hangs in the center of the Civil Rights gallery, among other giants. Commissioned and unveiled in 2013 to become part of the @msmuseumart permanent collection, the portraits of Medgar and Myrlie are complementary pendants that capture the action and unwavering diligence of Medgar and the studied grace and strength of Myrlie. As a pair, they tell a story that spans decades. .

“ ✊🏾✊🏾✊🏾 --- Regrann from @leemerrittesq -  #MedgarEvers was assassinated 55 years ago today. He was 38. 
Medgar was brave. He stood up against injustice in the heart of the south —Jackson Mississippi. I’m proud to say my friend and revolutionary Chockwe Lumumba is now mayor of that city. Due to his constant fight for justice and the ever present peril it represented he was typically escorted home by two FBI agents and a local police officer. 
On the day he was killed— the same day President Kennedy delivered a passionate civil rights address from the White House— his escort had abandoned him. When he arrived home, Evers's family was waiting for him and his children exclaimed to his wife, Myrlie, that he had arrived.Emerging from his car and carrying NAACP T-shirts that read "Jim Crow Must Go", Evers was struck in the back with a bullet fired from an Enfield 1917 rifle; the bullet ripped through his heart. Initially thrown to the ground by the impact of the shot, Evers rose and staggered 30 feet (10 meters) before collapsing outside his front door. His wife Myrlie was the first to find him. She rushed him to the nearest hospital where he was initially refused admission due to his race. After much quarreling he was finally admitted becoming the first to integrate the Jackson Hospital. He died 50 minutes after his admission. “I often wonder what would have happened if that would have been me— all of this shit so we can be free.” - Common - #regrann --- #LeeMerritt #ShaunKing #EricReid #ColinKaepernick #NFL #KnowYourRights #KnowYourRightsCamp #DoingBigThings #BlackLivesMatter #BlackGirlsRock #BlackGirlMagic #BlackBoyJoy #BlackJoy #BlackExcellence #BlackGirlsWhoBlog #BlacksWhoBlog #TakeAKnee #TakeTheKnee #ImWithKap #ImWithEReid ”

Due to his constant fight for justice and the ever present peril it represented he was typically escorted home by two FBI agents and a local police officer. On the day he was killed— the same day President Kennedy delivered a passionate civil rights address from the White House— his escort had abandoned him. When he arrived home, Evers's family was waiting for him and his children exclaimed to his wife, Myrlie, that he had arrived.Emerging from his car and carrying NAACP T-shirts that read "Jim Crow Must Go", Evers was struck in the back with a bullet fired from an Enfield 1917 rifle; the bullet ripped through his heart. Initially thrown to the ground by the impact of the shot, Evers rose and staggered 30 feet (10 meters) before collapsing outside his front door. His wife Myrlie was the first to find him. She rushed him to the nearest hospital where he was initially refused admission due to his race. After much quarreling he was finally admitted becoming the first to integrate the Jackson Hospital. He died 50 minutes after his admission. “I often wonder what would have happened if that would have been me— all of this shit so we can be free.” - Common - #regrann  --- #LeeMerritt  #ShaunKing  #EricReid  #ColinKaepernick  #NFL  #KnowYourRights  #KnowYourRightsCamp  #DoingBigThings  #BlackLivesMatter  #BlackGirlsRock  #BlackGirlMagic  #BlackBoyJoy  #BlackJoy  #BlackExcellence  #BlackGirlsWhoBlog  #BlacksWhoBlog  #TakeAKnee  #TakeTheKnee  #ImWithKap  #ImWithEReid

✨ Medgar Evers ✨

On June 12, 1963, Medgar Evers pulled into his driveway after returning from an integration meeting where he had conferred with NAACP lawyers. Emerging from his car and carrying NAACP T-shirts that stated, “Jim Crow Must Go”, Evers was struck in the back with a bullet that ricocheted into his home. He staggered 30 feet before collapsing, dying at the local hospital 50 minutes later. Evers was murdered just hours after President John F. Kennedy’s speech on national television in support of civil rights.

Mourned nationally, Evers was buried on June 19 in Arlington National Cemetery and received full military honors in front of a crowd of more than 3,000 people, the largest funeral at Arlington since John Foster Dulles. The past chairman of the American Veterans Committee, Mickey Levine, said at the services, “No soldier in this field has fought more courageously, more heroically than Medgar Evers.” #medgarevers #medgareverscollege #consciousminds #iamconsciousminds #iamconsciousminds365 #mississippi #naacp #younggiftedandblack #foreveryounggiftedandblack

Regrann from @natstronaut -  I recently learned that yesterday was the anniversary of Medgar Evers' death, a civil rights leader in Mississippi. A lot of people know Dr. Martin Luther King but have never heard of Evers. Evers was a WWII veteran and college graduate in business administration, as well as a husband and father. He was the field secretary of the NAACP at a time when even being associated meant you could be a target, let alone being a leader in the organization. In Mississippi he set up boycotts against businesses that practiced discrimination, and investigated violent acts like the Emmett Till lynching, where a 14 year old boy was lynched for talking to a white woman. He constantly received death threats from white supremacist groups for his efforts in integrating the South. 🔺
On June 12th, 1963 after coming home from a NAACP meeting, Evers was assassinated in his driveway by a member of the KKK. The all-white juries failed to reach verdicts in the first two trials of the killer in the 1960s. It was 30 years later when the killer was finally convicted in a new trial based on new evidence, and was sentenced to life in prison.

On June 12, 1963, Medgar Evers was shot in the back in his own driveway by a white supremacist. He died in front of his wife and three children. It took until 1994 to convict the man that murdered him. #blackhistory #blackfacts #medgarevers #racism #blackexcellence #blackpower
I learned about Medgar Evers as a child. Mr. Evers was a civil rights activist who was murdered in his driveway on the morning of June 12, 1963. Evers, a field secretary for the NAACP in Mississippi, was shot in the back shortly after President Kennedy's Civil Rights address. His wife found him in a pool of blood in the driveway. He had 3 young children. His murderer wouldn't be convicted until 1994.
.
As a health care professional, something striking about Evers's story is that he didn't die immediately on the scene and was taken to the closest hospital in Jackson Mississippi. Upon arrival to the white only facility, he was initially refused care. Eventually (some reports say within an hour, others longer) he was admitted (likely because of his position in the NAACP) and he was pronounced dead soon after. 
Doctors and nurses of today and of yesteryear have taken similar oaths to do no harm. Yet the idea of hesitating to provide medical care on the basis makes me cringe but was common practice in the 50s/60s.  Factoids like this add historical context to our understanding of social inequity and define why doctors must be socially and politically active. Although 1963 was 55 years ago and hospitals are no longer officially segregated -inequities in access, treatment and outcomes are pervasive in healthcare.
.
Another eerily familiar historical note related to Evers is this quote from the Mississippi Advisory Committee to the US Commission on Civil Rights that convened shortly after his assassination: “in all important areas of citizenship a Negro in Mississippi receives substantially less than his due cosideration as an American and as a Mississippian. A Negro is treated with a 'pernicious indifference' from the white man. Nor is this just a private caste system; it is enforced legally and illegally by state and local governments." When we consider our present politic -bans and systemic de-accessing of social services/voting booths/right to due process -it is hauntingly reminiscent of 1963 policies that Evers fought against. #blackdoctors #minoritiesinmedicine #medicine #blackhistory #medgarevers

Yesterday's email from @medgareverscollege #presidentrudycrew honoring the great civil rights leader #medgarevers need that kind of leadership more than ever today. We must #become such leaders for others. "Dear Friend of Medgar Evers College,
Today marks the 55th anniversary of the assassination of Medgar Wiley Evers. Shortly after midnight on June 12, 1963, Evers was shot in the back in the driveway of his home in Jackson, Mississippi.  Fifty-five years later, generations are galvanized to continue Evers’s work. But as Evers proclaimed, “You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.”
Medgar Evers fearlessly marched, organized and inspired his community. He strived for a socially just world rooted in the values of fairness, equality, respect for diversity, and the application of human rights in all spheres of life, including academia. If people could gain access to a world-class education, Evers knew the quality of their lives would vastly improve. 
While progress has been made, much more needs to be done. A lack of social justice anywhere is an affront to us all. In the spirit of the Medgar Wiley Evers, let us take this opportunity to renew our commitment to social justice. Every one of us are his legacies. We are all capable of transforming society for the better. #socialactivism #keepfighting #civilrights

On this day 55 years ago, Civil Rights Leader Medgar Evers was assassinated by the KKK. He was only 37 years old.

Byron de la Beckwith, a white supremacist who saw the confederate flag as emblematic of his beliefs, was not successfully prosecuted for the murder of Medgar until 1995. .

#localhistory: 55 years ago, Medgar Evers was assassinated by a white supremacist in the driveway of his Jackson home. His wife and kids were inside, and when they took him to a hospital, he was initially refused because of his race. He died an hour later. •••••
His kids had been trained in what to do if their home was bombed or shot at. The Evers built the home without a front door—they thought it would make them safer. As Mississippi’s first field secretary for NAACP, he organized youth sit-ins, he advocated for school integration, and rallied to get justice for Emmett Till. He seemed to be increasingly aware of the danger around him in the weeks leading up to his death. “You can kill a man, but you can’t kill an idea,” he once said. ••••••
i drive by this house on tough days sometimes and just sit and wonder how people like him, and his family,sacrificed  for people like me despite the unthinkable racist violence of the era.  it feels cheap to just say thank you. If you ever visit Jackson, the home is now a museum owned by Tougaloo College. #mississippi #jxn #history #blackhistory #medgarevers #jackson #komadicxthesip #komadicblog #keauxdotcom #naacp

He wasn't a thug. He wasn't a menace to society. He wasn't a jail board. He wasn't lazy. He didn't look intimidating. He didn't "reach" for anything. No officers "feared for their lives". He didn't "resist arrest"......

Evers had faced countless threats + acts of violence at the hands of people opposed to his mission for equality + justice. He paid the ultimate sacrifice so we may enjoy some of the freedoms we have today.

Though he died at age 37, he left behind an immense + unforgettable legacy. #TuesdayThoughts #OTD #BlackHistory - #blmhoUSton
