Little did I realize when John Frazier and I had our tear- and emotion-filled reunion in November 2007 at a “Symposium on Social Justice in the 1960s” at the University of Southern Mississippi that I would find myself a year later as part of an event shaping up at the Smithsonian Institution that will help connect the dots between the civil rights era of four decades ago with the election of America’s first black president, Barack Obama.

Frazier said he and his daughter are working with the Smithsonian to donate the historic letters, writings and documents of Medgar Evers to the Civil Rights wing of the nation’s museum.

If everything goes together as planned, it is possible that President Obama may be enticed to participate, to take receipt of papers associated with a man who has often been described as the first martyr of the great civil rights movement of the 1950s and ‘60s.
