WASHINGTON —

Myrlie Evers-Williams is calling on Americans to work together to build on the nation's progress in her invocation for President Barack Obama's inaugural ceremony.

The widow of slain civil rights activist Medgar Evers' message of inclusion for the inaugural ceremonies comes 50 years after her husband was gunned down in the driveway of his Mississippi home.

The inauguration falls on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Evers-Williams is a distinguished scholar at Alcorn State University in Lorman, Miss. She was chairwoman of the NAACP from 1995 to 1998.
