-56  years ago Emmett Till was brutally murdered for whistling at a white  woman… his mother refused to let his murder be be swept under the rug  by having and open casket televised funeral…”Look what they did to my  boy,” you’ll forever be remembered Emmett RIP
Emmett Till, a black boy from a Chicago, was visiting his grandfather  and grand-uncle Mose Wright in the town of Money, Mississippi,  population about 360. Although warned by his mother not to talk to  whites, he disregarded that warning, saying “Bye, baby” to Carolyn  Bryant, a white woman working at Bryant’s Grocery and Meat Market. Till  and his cousin, Curtis Jones, were told to leave town. They did not. One  week later, J. W. Milam and his half-brother Roy Bryant arrived at  Wright’s house, and abducted the “nigger here from Chicago.” They beat  him to death, gouging out one of his eyes, and dumped his weighted body  into the Tallahatchee River. An all-white jury found the two not guilty.  Emmett’s mother, Mamie, insisted on an open-casket funeral where his  beaten, pulpy face was visible to the public, hoping her child did not  die in vain. 
"Look what they did to my boy."
