In 1954, Medgar Evers (Howard E. Rollins, Jr.) was a 29-year-old Mississippi insurance salesman barred from applying to law school because of his race. Becoming the state's field secretary for the NAACP, he'd be a tireless advocate and activist for desegregation, and his mission ended with a white supremacist's bullet. Stirring "American Playhouse" adaptation of widow Myrlie Evers' memoir co-stars Irene Cara (as Ms. Evers), Roscoe Lee Brown, Margaret Avery, Laurence Fishburne. 87 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
