Wordless Wednesday: Black History Month - Mr. & Mrs. Medgar & Myrlie Evers


Mr. & Mrs. Medgar & Myrlie Evers  contribution to African-American history opened up the doors for  African-Americans by fighting for us in the Civil Rights Movement.  In 1952, after earning a Bachelors Degree in Business Medgar Evers began working with the NAACP traveling and organizing peaceful protest, and voter registration drives.  He was elected to be the organizations first secretary and continued to speak on behalf of his people.  

June 12, 1963 Mr. Evers was shot in the back in his own driveway, but his dedicated wife picked up the torch, and in her husbands memory began to travel the world and continuing to travel spreading her husbands words, and the progress of the Civil Rights Movement. 

The Real Wives of Chicago will like to honor, Mr. & Mrs. Medgar & Myrlie Evers, Thank You for your Contribution!
