“Such a sense of history!”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

Such a sense of history - Medgar Evers was assassinated in his driveway by a coward. That coward was finally brought to justice many years later.

“A Moment in History”
Reviewed June 16, 2012

I couldn't believe I was standing in the exact location where this Civil Rights Leader was massacred. I felt as if I could feel his spirit. It was a very meaningful and spiritual experience for me.

“Wonderful”
Reviewed January 20, 2011

This museum will take you back in time! So moving. The museum is owned by Tougaloo College and you have to call and make a reservation to tour (it's just the house, so they don't have workers there all the time which is completely understandable). Such a great thing to do in Jackson.
