Remembering Medger Evers
On this day in 1963, NAACP field secretary Medgar Evers was gunned down in his driveway just hours after President John F. Kennedy's nationally televised speech supporting civil rights. He was buried in Arlington National Cemetery, where he received full military honors before a crowd of more than 3,000 onlookers.
