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. Madhubuti, Madhubuti is a major contributor to the Black literary tradition, in particular through his early association with the Black Arts Movement beginning in the mid-60s, and which has had a lasting and major influence, even today. A proponent of independent Black institutions, Madhubuti is the founder, publisher, and chairman of the board of Third World Press (established in 1967), which today is the largest independent black-owned press in the United States
