Yesterday, July 25th...

Yesterday, July 25 we celebrated the 75th birthday of Emmit Till! 

Emmit who was brutally beaten and murdered 61 years ago (1955) in Mississippi is an iconic figure within the USA civil right movement. In order to show the brutality Emmit’s mother insisted on a open casket at his funeral. This caused outrage when the public saw the ruthlessness of racism as depicted on Emmit Till’s face in photos.61 years have passed and still the savage brutality and racism both systematically and otherwise haven’t cease.
