U.S. Navy Ship Honors Civil Rights Martyr Medgar Evers

The U.S. Navy named one of its ships after civil rights leader Medgar Evers, who was assassinated in his driveway in 1963.  “In a real sense, he set us all free,” Navy Secretary Ray Mabus said of Evers at the christening on Nov. 12. “His life was a mighty blow against the chains of racism that bound us all for too, too long.”
