The Killing Of Emmett Till

 
    In 1955 of August, a young man by the name of Emmett Till went to visit his relatives in Mississippi. One day in a white owned store, he supposedly whistled at a white woman. That same month on the 28th he was kidnapped, beatened, shot, and dumped in the Tallahatchie River. When his body was found, you couldn't recognize him. Roy Bryant and J.W. Milan were arrested for the crime but were acquitted by an all-white jury. However, the two later bragged on how they had killed Emmett.
