Bernice Lloyd Bell

Mrs. Bell was born in Kosciusko, Mississippi and attended Jackson State University and Atlanta University and currently resides in Jackson, MS. She was a neighbor to Medgar, living a distance of five houses apart.

Mrs. Bell was at her home the night Medgar was assassinated and she recalls that evening vividly. She remembers Medgar fondly as her neighbor and friend, and is most grateful for “the contribution that Medgar made for us, as a people, and our dignity.”
