The Legacy and Memory of Emmett Louis Till: A Story of Geography, History and Racism

Wednesday, March 22, 2023

The story of Emmett Till was silenced for over 50 years after his brutal murder on August 28, 1955. Discover the untold history of the injustice that followed 14-year-old Emmett's trip to buy candy at Bryant's Grocery in Money, Mississippi, where he whistled at the white store clerk. In this presentation, retired history teacher Jim Herm will share his research into the post-Civil war South, the legacy of Emmitt Till, and the start of the Civil Rights movement.
