Of the seven Evers children – Eddie, Eva Lee, Gene, Charles, Medgar, Liz and Mary Ruth – Charles and Medgar had a special bond. They did everything together – fishing, working and walking the twelve miles to school and back. The brothers also shared the same bed.
Although honorably discharged from the US Army as a Sergeant in 1945 after WWII, Medgar Evers was denied the right to vote in 1946 in his hometown of Durant, MS. Through My Brother’s Eyes tells the story of Medgar Evers as seen through the eyes of his brother Charles Evers.
