Today in American history…Emmett Till was born on July 25, 1941 in Webb, Mississippi. He died at the tender age of fourteen on August 28, 1955 in Money, MS. He was brutally beaten and lynched.
One of the most defining and important books that I’ve read in my lifetime was written by his beloved mother, Death of Innocence. If you ever have a chance to read it I highly recommend it.
His life should always be remembered and cherished. His name should never be forgotten.
