This is 2020, not 1920...or 1820

In this interview presentation, I spoke about the recent and current situations, that we've seen occurring in America.

This year is 2020, not 1920...or 1820. As time goes on, life is supposed to be changing for the better. Instead, it seems as if things are getting worse. This issue of police brutality and racial tension has got to stop...before it's too late. If these issues continue, they will only lead to the continuous destruction of us all, which is already taking place.

If we all come together as one, to fix these problems in America, we would be alright because we have so much to gain. Together we stand, divided we fall.

The Historical Significance of Medgar Evers - Mini Doc 2 (With Subtitles)

In this interview presentation, i'm going to talk to you about the life and historical significance of WW2 Veteran and Civil Rights Activist, Medgar Evers.

Medgar Wiley Evers was born on the 2nd of July, in 1925 in Decatur, Mississippi, as the third of five children. Medgar was raised amongst his four siblings, by his Father, James Evers and Mother, Jesse Wright.

On the 24th of November 1954, Evers was named as NAACP's first field secretary for Mississippi. One of Evers’ first assignments was documenting the death of Emmett Till, in 1955, which had made him a prominent black leader to his peers and a man of great adoration to African Americans in the south.

During the 1960s, Medgar Evers rapidly grew into the highly influential figure that we acknowledge today, through his social efforts with the NAACP. His patience and resilience expressed through his civil rights leadership, along with his investigations, made him a prime target of white supremacists, in the southern states of America.

As an individual with a high reputation as an advocate for social justice in America, Evers lived with constant fear of dying, as he had experienced many close calls, as a civil rights activist, during an immensely tense and racially precarious period in America.
