Medgar Evers was a WWII veteran that became a civil rights activist in Mississippi. He was the first state field secretary of the NAACP in Mississippi and organized voter-registration efforts and economic boycotts. Evers was assassinated in 1963, and after years of on-again, off-again legal proceedings, his killer was sent to prison in 1994. In 2017, President Barack Obama designated Evers' home a national historic landmark.
