56 years ago today Emmett Till was murdered. They found his body  mangled at the bottom of the Tallahatchie River with a cotton gin fan tied around his neck with barbed wire. Till had dared to break one of the sacred rules of the Jim Crow South. He “flirted” with a white woman. He was only fourteen years old at the time of his death. I dedicate this post to him ; He did not live his life in vain. He’s gone, but not forgotten.
