Medgar Evers Statue Memorial

It's appropriate that our civil rights pilgramage began in a light snow in Jackson Mississippi with me looking up at Medger Evers, the first civil rights hero who moved me. I learned later that Medger Evers, like many other black World War Two veterans came home from war determined to achieve democracy for all in their own nation.


  1. What a powerful photo, Victoria! Thanks for sharing it!

  2. This is an amazing journey you and Bob are on. What a wonderful way to display your photos and words so that anyone can read them. Bill will be very interested I know. As a matter of fact I see this as an incredible travelogue that you could make a book about or submit to travel magazines. Thanks for allowing us to step along with you as you breathe in the history of our lifetime.

  3. A strong photo in front of a strong man! This must have been a very meaningful moment.
