CHAPEL HILL – The North Carolina NAACP and other activists will gather in Raleigh for Witness Wednesday this week. It’s an event commemorating the 50th anniversary of the assassination of civil rights activist, Medgar Evers.

The event is set to begin at 10:00 a.m. at the Davie Street Presbyterian Church and then travels down the road for a news conference in front of the General Assembly.

Witness Wednesday is part of the civil rights group’s greater efforts to protest recent legislation passed and proposed by the NC Legislature.

The NAACP also plans to announce details regarding the Forward Together Voter Registration Campaign, launching on Wednesday as well.
