What a great visit even if some furniture aren't the original ones. The University send a guide to tell you the life of the Evers Family and their drama. You can see the bullet impacts in the kitchen and can imagine the terror they lived.

A terrible thing happened here, but fortunately Tougaloo College has turned into an important learning opportunity and a meaningful historical landmark. Glad I was able to see the house and learn about the history. A very moving experience.

The tour was very enlightening and Ms. Minnie gave an outstanding overview of the events leading up to the Assassination of Medgar Evers. Enjoyed it very much. Was visiting with 45 ladies from Atlanta.

I have learned so much about Mr. Evers on our trip to Jackson. We visited the Museum of Civil Rights where we first learned about him. Pur tour guide at his house was very knowledgeable of his life, the area and civil rights history.
