Emmett Till
Emmett Louis Till is a 14-year-old African-American who lived in Mississippi in 1955 after being accused of insulting a white woman in his family's grocery store. The brutality of his murder and the release of his killers draw attention to the long history of violent persecution against African Americans in the United States. Until after becoming a symbol of the civil rights movement. Till was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois. During the summer vacation in August 1955, he visited relatives near Money, in the Mississippi Delta. He talked to 21-year-old Carolyn Bryant, the owner of a small grocery store there who was married white. While what happened at the store was controversial, Till has been charged with flirting or vengeance with Bryant. Till's interaction with Bryant, perhaps inadvertently, if not, violated the driving limits of a black man interacting with a white male in the Jim Crow period south.
