The tragedy of Emmett Till

He was only 14 when he was brutally lynched in the Jim Crow South. His mother chose to hold an open casket funeral to expose the horror of his murder. This is the story of Emmett Till, a lasting symbol in the fight for racial justice.

    Smh I remember this, he was dragged behind a truck with barbed wire around his neck and he was out on display behind a store glass window. Humanity will never learn, especially if people just stay put in one place and never travel. The ideology of hate continues, you think by now it would be gone, but its not.

    Killed just because of a lie. How are the perpetrators and instigator living with murder on their hands? Their punishment is waiting at the Almighty's hands.

    Not right but the racism is still going on today. We are all human beings. Color has nothing to do with being good or bad. This has to stop!!

    Why wasn’t the Trash wife, who years later admitted she lied not arrested for Aiding and abetting this crime and thrown in jail or even executed ????? She was born in 1934 and would be 86 years old today.

    May the people who did this to Emmit Till never know peace and their generations after them. Let them seek for peace and not find it.
