1955.08.28: Response to Murder of Emmett Till

“Emmett Louis Till (July 25, 1941 – August 28, 1955) was an African-American boy who was murdered in Mississippi at the age of 14 after reportedly flirting with a white woman. . . . Through the constant attention it received, Till’s case became emblematic of the disparity of justice for blacks in the South.”
