The Life and Times of Myrlie Evers

A story of a trailblazing woman, empowered wife, and social justice champion.


Call Me Mrs. Evers is a one-woman play, telling the story of Myrlie Evers, wife of slain civil rights leader Medgar Evers and the first woman chair of National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). She is also something of an unsung hero of the women's rights movement as well.
