Joy Reid, host of MSNBC’s The ReidOut and bestselling author, chronicles the lives of civil rights icons Medgar and Myrlie Evers. Myrlie Louise Beasley met Medgar Evers in college, forging an instant connection that culminated in marriage a year later, prompting her to leave school to prioritize their growing family. Medgar, an NAACP field secretary, alongside Myrlie, focused their energy on fighting against segregation and discrimination. Despite relentless threats and Medgar's assassination in 1963, Myrlie carried on their work, writing about Medgar's activism and assuming a leadership role in the NAACP. Join Joy at Chicago Humanities as we discuss these towering figures in the civil rights movement, their relationship, and the crucial groundwork they laid for Black Americans, which still reverberates to this day. A book signing will follow this program.
