Emmett Till

Emmett Till’s 1955 slaying galvanized the civil rights movement. But an infamous magazine story about the case was a cover-up, experts say. More than 60 years after Till’s death, myths and lies stemming from a 1956 Look magazine article persist. But a fresh look by Till experts, a new FBI investigation and the voices of witnesses are unraveling the cords of deception for a new generation. Source 7e

Till Emmett

Emmett Till murder investigation closed by Justice Department, which couldn't prove a new claim that a key witness lied. Till, a 14-year-old from Chicago, was lynched in 1955 in Mississippi. Till was accused of whistling at a white woman, and was then kidnapped by several white men, tortured and killed. His battered body was found three days later in the Tallahatchie River. The viciousness of the killing rocked the nation. Two white men were acquitted by an all-white jury that year. The Justice Department reopened the case in 2018, on potentially new information.
