Air date 06/14/13
Host: Maggie Stevenson

The night after Medgar Evers was assassinated, his widow spoke at mass meeting that had already been planned. This one was at the Pearl Street Baptist Church. “Nothing can bring Medgar back,” she said, “but the cause can live on. It was his wish that this movement be one of the most successful that this nation has ever known. We cannot let his death be in vain.”
