This Saturday the Empowerment Hour Online University we welcome another very special guest. Myrlie Evers-Williams, the widow of Civil Rights & NAACP leader Medgar Evers. Ms. Evers-Williams has fought for civil rights ever since her husband died.
In 1998 Ms. Evers-Williams was the first Black woman to be named to the Los Angeles Board of Public Works. And in 1995 Ms. Evers-Williams became the first woman to chair the NAACP.
A published author, Ms. Evers-Williams most recently published her memoirs, Watch Me Fly: What I Learned on the Way to Becoming the Woman I Was Meant to Be
This week we will continue this powerful series by asking Ms. Evers-Williams Have things really changed for Black People since Medgar Evers was alive? Are we as a people moving in the right direction and how we all can remember the legacy of Medgar Evers moving forward?
In Hour two we welcome Haki R.
