In Loving Memory
James Charles Evers
“This morning the world lost another fearless Civil Rights leader. The Honorable James Charles Evers, brother of slain civil rights leader Medgar Wiley Evers, passed away peacefully surrounded by his family at the home of his daughter, Charlene Evers-Kreel.
One mission in the life of Charles Evers was to advance the work of his beloved brother, who was assassinated on June 12, 1963.
After the assassination, Charles Evers rushed to Jackson to continue fighting for equality and take his brother’s place as field secretary for the Mississippi NAACP. In 1969, he became Mississippi’s first black mayor since Reconstruction in the biracial town of Fayette, MS.
After serving as mayor, he returned to the airwaves with his radio program, “Let’s Talk,” on WMPR 90.1 “The Voice of the Community” in Jackson, Mississippi.
Our family appreciates the outpouring of affection, love, and support shown over the years. While our family is heartbroken by our loss, we are proud of the legacy he leaves behind. His voice will be missed but will continue to resound over his home state of Mississippi.
The Honorable James Charles Evers lived to be 97 years old.”
