Medgar Wiley Evers (July 2, 1925 – June 12, 1963) was anAfrican-Americancivil rightsactivist from Mississippi involved in efforts to overturn segregation at the University of Mississippi. After returning from overseas military service in World War II and completing his secondary education, he became active in the civil rights movement. He became a field secretary for theNAACP.

Evers was assassinated by Byron De La Beckwith, a member of theWhite Citizens' Council. As a veteran, Evers was buried withfull military honors at Arlington National Cemetery.[2][3] His murder and the resulting trials inspired civil rights protests, as well as numerous works of art, music, and film.

... Change comes to Washington, not from Washington ...



When 250,000 people marched on the National Mall 50 years ago they demanded among other things a hike in the minimum wage from $1.25 to $2 an hour. Todaythousands of fast food workers are holding a one-day strike in cities across the country, demanding a wage of $15 an hour. That's equivalent to the $2 an hour protestors called for in 1963, after adjusting for inflation.
Protestors also want the right to form a union without intimidation or retaliation from their employer.
