“You can kill a man, but you can’t kill an idea.” - Medgar Evers

This compelling black history DVD drama from director Rob Reiner chronicles the infamous murder case of civil rights activist Medgar Evers in Mississippi in 1963.

Evers was a field secretary for the NAACP in Mississippi when, while exiting his vehicle, he was shot and killed by rifle in his own driveway.

After two trials (both with all-white juries) failed to convict prime suspect Byron De La Beckwith, it appeared Evers’ family would never receive justice. But, after new evidence came to light, Beckwith went on trial once more and was ultimately found guilty. He was sentenced to life in prison in 1994.

This well-acted (James Woods was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his efforts) black history DVD documents the struggles of Evers’ wife Myrlie (Whoopi Goldberg) to find justice in a white-dominated legal system. It will remain with you long after you watch it.
