This man is the last living witness to the night #EmmitTil was taken. He's his cousin. Black ppl suffer huge traumatic experiences being Black in 馃嚭馃嚫. And they are ignored and our strength to persevere is taken for granted and/or weaponized against us.

Bless this man's heart and soul. #Spoutible

My high school click formed as a direct result of having seen an Emmitt Till documentary.

Since 86 we still use the crew name.

I鈥檓 still mad the accuser confessed and still didn鈥檛 do anytime. Her assets should have been seized and given to the Till family. #JusticeOrJustUs

It's been nearly 70 years, and Rev. Parker has lived with that nightmare and the injustices that followed. If reparations are made within his lifetime, I want the Reverend to be among the first recipients.

When I was a kid I saw a TV program that talked about Emmett Till. My parents were upset and assured me that "he shouldn't have been in that place, doing those things."
A lot of people I've known (mostly white people, like me) seemed to regard these attitudes as remote relics. They're not.

Dang. I'm white, and one summer my grandpa and I read about it. (He couldn't read so I read). He said everybody deserves a fair shake, even if they did wrong. He said that young man did nothing wrong and never ever judge anyone before getting to know them cuz how they look doesn't matter.

Thanks for posting this. It is a part of the Emmett Till story that I was not aware of.
