Notably: Medgar Evers, the civil rights leader and a field secretary of the NAACP in Mississippi, is assassinated by white supremacist Byron De La Beckwith after living through so many years of death threats that his family and young children had trained for what we now call “active shooters” for much of that time–as school children now do across the country. An all-white jury deadlocked in De La Beckwith’s trial. He was not convicted for murder until 1994. He died in prison in 2001. It is also the anniversary of Miranda v. Arizona, the 1966 Supreme Court Decision that gave us those immortal words: ““You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be provided for you.”
Malcolm McDowell, star of “A Clockwork Orange,” the movie version of Anthony Burgess’s novel, is 79 today.
