This is a 17 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on the Civil Rights - Key Figures - Medgar Evers. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

Medgar Evers was an African-American civil rights activist whose murder drew national attention. Born in MS, he served in World War II before going to work for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).

After attempting to segregate the University of Mississippi Law School in 1954, he became the NAACP field secretary in MS. Evers was subjected to threats as the most visible civil rights leader in the state, and he was shot to death in June 1963.

Following his murder, in December 1990, Byron De La Beckwith was again indicted for the murder of Medgar Evers. After a number of appeals, the Mississippi Supreme Court finally ruled in favor of a 3rd trial in April 1993. 10 months later, testimony began before a racially mixed jury of 8 blacks and 4 whites.

In February 1994, nearly 31 years after Evers’ death, Beckwith was convicted and sentenced to life in prison. He died in January 2001 at the age of 80.
