The Medgar Evers Institute

During the Civil rights Movement, Medgar Evers and other national leaders charter a course for justice and quality, inspiring the nation to rise to its ideals.  Assassinated in 1963, Evers' contributions and commitment remains a blueprint for achieving positive social change.  To continue that work and to ensure that the history of the Mississippi Civil Rights Movement, its people and its lessons are not forgotten, Myrlie Evers-Williams created the Medgar Evers Institute (MEI), a national organization, with the vision of fulfilling her husband's dream of justice and equality for all people.

The Medgar Evers Institute’s Mission is to impact future generations in successfully leading and developing positive change through cultivated learning, generating new solutions, and promoting civic engagement.
