Myrlie Evers reflects on 60th anniversary of her husband’s assassination | USA TODAY

Approaching the 60th anniversary of the assassination of her husband Medgar Evers, Myrlie Evers-Williams reflects on the importance of remembering history.

Myrlie Evers felt her temper rising as she sat in the White House theater behind President Joe Biden last month, watching a screening of the award-winning movie “Till.”

She appreciated the invitation and had no complaints about the film’s portrayal of her as the young wife of civil rights organizer Medgar Evers. What riled her was the reminder of the lynching of 14-year-old Emmett Till in 1955, the reminder of what the violence of the civil rights struggle had cost his family and hers. And of the unfinished business that remains.
