Civil rights activist to speak Monday at Cameron University

Posted: Updated:

Lawton- Cameron University is preparing to welcome a very special guest to campus on Monday. 

Myrlie Evers-Williams will be the featured speaker for the school's 2013 Dr. Martin Luther King, Junior Day celebration. She's the wife of murdered civil rights activist Medgar Evers. For over three decades she has fought to carry on his legacy.

Evers-Williams was scheduled to speak last month, but the event was re-scheduled so she could deliver the invocation at President Obama's inauguration.

Be sure to join us for 7NEWS tonight at 10 p.m. Reporter Nicole Osei will sit down with Evers-Williams to learn more about her mission to educate younger generations about the civil rights struggles of the past.
