Charles Evers Civil Rights Hero brother of Medgar Evers

Charles Evers. A no nonsense real life history lesson from someone who was there beside his brother Medgar,  Bobby  and Dr. King. What these men sacrificed to have an African American in the White House. Where the Black community has failed them and themselves because of rage and hate.
