In this June 10, 2015, photo, John Ashworth, chairperson of the Elbert Williams Memorial Committee, displays a photo of the charter members of the NAACP Brownsville branch, at his home in Brownsville, Tenn. One of the members was Elbert Williams, far left, a charter member of the local NAACP branch. Williams was killed by unknown assailants on June 20, 1940. Williams’ unsolved slaying has prompted the placing of a historic marker in Brownsville, a service held in his honor, and an effort by retired lawyer Jim Emison to reopen the case.
