After watching the Emmett Till video in class I was pretty shocked by the story, and even more shocked that I had never heard it before. This story seems so pivatol to the black equal rights movement and I was amazed that this was not one of the stories you learned about in school when we were learning about black history. I think this is a very important story to know because it is such a blatant act of overt racism that went without punishment and was in fact glorified by the southern white community and the murderers of Emmett Till who later wrote a book for profit, confessing to their actions and still went without penalty. It’s hard to believe that such acts still occured so recently in our history. I think that Emmetts mother showed a tremendous amount of courage to display her sons body in such a controversial state, but she made her point and tried to protect others from that same fate.
