Ghosts of Mississippi (Fantasmas do Passado), de Rob Reiner (1996)

Ghosts of Mississippi is a real-life drama covering the final trial of Byron De La Beckwith, the assassin of heroic civil rights leader Medgar Evers. The movie begins with the murder on June 12, 1963 and the events surrounding the two initial trials which both ended in hung juries. The movie then covers district attorney Bobby De Laughter's transformation and alliance with Myrlie Evers, Medgar Evers' widow, as he becomes more involved with bringing Beckwith to trial for the third time 30 years later. Byron De La Beckwith was convicted on February 5, 1994, after having remained a free man for much of the 30 years after the murder, giving justice for Medgar Evers' family.

Cast:  Alec Baldwin, James Woods and Whoopi Goldberg. Virginia Madsen, Craig Nelson, William H. Macy, Brock Peters, Wayne Rodgers and Diane Ladd.

Academy Awards, 1997 Nominations to James Woods as Best Supporting Actor and Best Makeup.

The daughter of civil rights activist Martin Luther King, Yolanda King, played Medgar Evers' daughter Reena Evers in this film.

Medgar Evers' two sons Darrell Evers and James Van Evers played themselves in this film. His widow Myrlie Evers was also one of this film's consultants.

Delmar Dennis (a key witness against the murderer, Byron de la Beckwith) and his family can be seen as extras in the parade scene. At this film's ending, a title card indicated that Bobby DeLaughter had run for a position as a judge and been defeated. That was true at the time. Subsequently, he was appointed to a judgeship and later elected overwhelmingly to that position.

Unlike her brothers, Reena Evers opted not to play herself. However, she can be seen numerous times as a juror in the 1994 trial.
