Mamie Till (Tap to Play Audio) | 📍Animation by @DavidandCorrin "I think everybody needed to know what had happened to Emmett Till." The strength of Mamie Till left an enduring impact on our history to this day. In 1955, her son, Emmett Till was beaten, mutilated and murdered by two white men in Money, Mississippi, for whistling at a white women. Upon receiving the news, it was her resolute decision to have an open casket funeral, determined to make this story known to the world. After her sons killers were acquitted of the murder and the government offered no help, she took her fight from the court to the people of America. The death of Emmett Till, and the determination of Mamie Till, ignited the Civil Rights Movement. As we honor Mamie Till, we can’t forget about the countless mothers and fathers around the world today facing similar injustices of vigilantism and police brutality. @amhistorymuseum @nmaahc @ebonymagazine
