Joy Reid’s ‘Medgar and Myrlie’ traces extraordinary lives and love of civil rights leaders

A love story is helping paint a fuller picture of the civil rights movement. Activist Medgar Evers was killed in 1963 by a white supremacist outside his home in Mississippi. His murder thrust Myrlie Evers into the spotlight, becoming a freedom fighter in her own right. Joy-Ann Reid traces their extraordinary lives in “Medgar and Myrlie: Medgar Evers and the Love Story That Awakened America.”
