Medgar and Myrlie's home is a must visit. I never cried so much just from the energy, the historic significance, or the life you could feel that lived there. If you visit please leave a generous donation. Private donations really keep this home open to educate future generations.
Visiting the Medgar Evers house was a highlight of our Southern civil rights history road trip...thanks to Ms. Minnie Watson, the docent who made the whole visit worthwhile.

This is not-to-be-missed opportunity to hear history and interpretation from someone who lived it.
