Names Mackenson. If these pictures/videos have anything important to say to future generations, it's this: I was here. I existed. I was young, and I was happy.

 
Medgar Evers was an African American civil rights and human rights activist from Mississippi involved in efforts to overturn segregation at the University of Mississippi.
Evers was assassinated by White Citizens’ Council member Byron De La Beckwith, and as a former serviceman, was buried with full military honors at Arlington National Cemetery. As a field secretary for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), he was one of the first martyrs of the civil rights movement. 
"Today, Medgar Evers was buried from the bullet he caughtThey lowered him down as a kingBut when the shadowy sun sets on the oneThat fired the gunHe’ll see by his graveOn the stone that remainsCarved next to his nameHis epitaph plain:Only a pawn in their game.”- Bob Dylan

"Today, Medgar Evers was buried from the bullet he caught
They lowered him down as a king
But when the shadowy sun sets on the one
That fired the gun
He’ll see by his grave
On the stone that remains
Carved next to his name
His epitaph plain:
Only a pawn in their game.”- Bob Dylan
