Statue of Medgar Evers

Mrs. Mirtes Gregory, Andrew Lee, E.J. Ivory, and others led the Medgar Evers Statue Fund committee to raise $60,000 to commission a life sized statue of Medgar Evers. A white artist, Mr. T. J. Warren from Rolling Fork, MS, created the bronze statute and dedicated it in 1991.
