50 Years have Passed. Remember Emmett Till

* 50 Years After the Murder of Emmett Till, the Investigation Continues *
Emmett Till was beaten and shot near Money, Mississippi after he allegedly whistled at a white female store clerk. Democracy Now! speaks with filmmaker Keith Beauchamp who produced "The Untold Story of Emmett Louis Till" and University of Missouri-Columbia professor Clenora Hudson-Weems.
Also this came out today: Autopsy positively identifies Emmett Till.

(Beautiful young Emmett pictured here above the horribly mutilated face of his body in the open casket his mother demanded. These were seen on the cover of Jet magazine at the time.)
