Very moving to be on the site. We just stopped by on the way to lunch on a random Sunday. So glad to share this history lesson with my son.
The house was out of our way to visit, but we felt it was a necessary one. You can make arrangements to have a tour, but we didn’t know that prior to visiting. Another stop we are glad we made.
I was very fortunate to have Tony Bounds as my tour guide. He is an instructor at a couple of colleges and really knows the history on Medgar Evers, civil rights history and African American history....
We only drove by here - it was not open. Evidently you have to make arrangements in advance to get in. I understand that the tour is very interesting but we were not able to do it.
As far as I know, this is not a site open for tours. We just parked and took pictures. As I was standing there, I reflected on how brave this young family man was in his quest for freedom.
