Storyboard Description

Emmett Till was killed by two white men. One of the men's wife had lied about Till flirting with her prompting them to abduct him from his great uncle's house that night. They beat him brutally and dumped him in a river. His body was discovered three days after he had been killed. This event prompted so many men to stop talking to white females and so many people to start paying attention to the hateful things that were happening to black people. Later the woman who he had allegedly flirted with, Carolyn Bryant, admitted she had lied about Till flirting with her. Yet her husband and his brother still got off.
