Summary
"Medgar Evers's story of courage, dignity, and sacrifice is a reminder of the high price some paid to ensure that the United States would meet its promise of equal rights and equal opportunity for all. After fighting for his country in World War II, Evers came home to a nation that treated him as a second-class citizen. He joined the NAACP and worked tirelessly to change conditions for African Americans. He paid a terrible price for his efforts--his life was taken by a white supremacist. Through powerful illustrations and accessible text, this dramatic graphic novel highlights Evers's courage and dignity during a dark period in American history." --from publisher's website
