Abstract:

Prior to receiving his degree, Evers enlisted in the United States Army and served overseas in World War II. After his return, he was the first African American disc jockey at WHOC Radio station in Philadelphia, Mississippi, and became active in the Mississippi Branch of the NAACP in 1948. Evers moved to Chicago, Illinois in 1956, but moved back to Mississippi after the assassination of his brother, Medgar Evers, becoming the field director for the Mississippi Branch of the NAACP. Evers was elected mayor of Fayette, Mississippi in 1969, the first African American mayor to be elected in Mississippi during the post-Reconstruction era.
