Emmett Till to be exhumed

One of the most brutal murders and disgusting events in American social and culture history continues to live on. The FBI is to exhume Emmett Till’s body.

Till was murdered in the summer of 1955, almost fifty years ago. There has yet to be a conviction his gruesome murder and one of the greatest shames of the Jim Crow South. Hopefully one day justice will be served, even if it is fifty years later than it should be.
