Never Too Late: A Prosecutor's Story Of Justice In The Medgar Evers Case

This book was a very detail accurate account of the EXTRAORDINARILY TRUE story of truth, justice and doing the right thing. The book was written by the case's lead prosecutor, Bobby DeLaughter. In 1963, Mississippi, Medgar Evers, a civil rights activist, was shot in his own driveway within the late hours of June 12th.

After 2 mistrials, his white assassin, Byron De La Beckwith, had prided himself that he had gotten away with murder that had lasted over 30 years. In the 90s, district attorney DeLaughter decides to re-investigate the case, with the help of Medgar's widow, Myrlie Evers.

The End Result:

I Loved It!

The way history is made and the way how much, although a widow, a woman loved her husband. How after 30 years justice prevailed.
This book gives a full detail of what REALLY occurred throughout this case.

A movie was featuring the many details of this case in 1996 titled "Ghosts Of Mississippi" starring Whoopi Goldberg, Alec Baldwin and, James Woods.

Bobby DeLaughter initially published this book in 2001, 4 years after the case and 5 years after the movie's release.

In the End:

I Loved It!

IS IT ever too late to do the right thing?
