                   of the Interior of the home of the late civil rights activist, Medgar
                   Evers, located in Jackson, Mississippi. The Evers family home was

                   Medgar Evers in 1963 by Byron De La Beckwith, a member of the
                   White Citizens' Council. The home, now a museum operated by
                   Tougaloo College, contains period furnishings, exhibits, and family
                   photographs. The study will seek to determine the national signifi-
