Remembering Emmett Till   

Before George Floyd, the death of Emmett Till (1955) energized the Civil Rights movement. His mother's courageous decision to have an open casket for the world to view how savagely he had been brutalized was a significant catalyst for the Civil Rights movement. Today, there is a debate about publishing images of the victims of gun violence in America. This action of Mamie Till has been noted as significant in the debate. "A picture is worth 1,000 words," at least.
