WATCH: Myrlie Evers-Williams Delivers Invocation at President Obama’s Inauguration

Moments ago, Myrlie Evers-Williams, the widow of civil rights leader Medgar Evers, delivered the invocation at President Obama’s inauguration.

In her remarks, she said, “One-hundred fifty years after the Emancipation Proclamation and fifty years after the March on Washington, we celebrate the spirit of our ancestors, which has allowed us to move from a nation of unborn hopes and a history of disenfranchised hopes to today’s expression of a more perfect union.”

Evers-Williams continued, "We ask that you grant our President the will to will to act courageously but cautiously when confronted with danger, and to act prudently but deliberately when challenged by adversity. Please continue to bless his efforts; to lead by example, in consideration and favor of the diversity of our people. Bless our families all across this nation.”
