How can one make sense of an untimely death? Especially the death of someone who spent his life working to make his country a more fair and compassionate place?

In 1963, NAACP Field Secretary Medgar Evers was assassinated by Byron De La Beckwith. Evers’ life and legacy has been commemorated in song, film, and TV. Now, author Frank X. Walker gives a new take on Medgar Evers’ story in poetry.

In this hour-long special, “The Unghosting of Medgar Evers,” Frank X. Walker and WUKY producer DeBraun Thomas present a stunning remix of poetry, music, and historical context.
