What an honor bestowed upon the City of Jackson today as the Medgar Evers Home Museum received a designation as a National Historic Landmark under the National Historic Landmarks Program. We honor the life and legacy of Medgar Evers and the sacrifices of his wife Myrlie Evers and their children. We are truly humbled by the designation and grateful for Congressman Bennie G. Thompson, Tougaloo College and all that made this possible.
#visitjacksonms #visitms #medgarevers #nationalparkservice #history #civilrights #activism #hope #communityToday we are honored to help welcome the Medgar & Myrlie Evers Home in Jackson, MS to the National Historic Landmark Program. From within this house, Mr. Evers and his family helped to inspire and lead the Civil Rights movement throughout the deep south. This is also where, on June 12, 1963 Mr. Evers gave the ultimate sacrifice to the quest for equal rights when he was assassinated in front of his family.
In the words of Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke, “Medgar Evers fought for equality and fairness for African Americans. He fought to shine a spotlight on injustice. He fought to realize the humanity and dignity of all people…”
With this designation, we all hope that the story of Medgar Evers and his family continue to transcend time and all cultural boundaries, and inspire countless more people to champion the cause for equality.
