Storyboard Text

  • Less than two weeks after Emmett’s body was buried. They only did this because Emmett was an African American boy that was talking to a white woman who he claimed that she was his girlfriend.
  • Born on July 25, 1941, in Chicago, Illinois, Emmett Till was a fourteen year old boy who was accused of whistling at Carolyn Bryant, a white woman who was a cashier at a grocery store.
  • 4 days later Roy and his half-brother J.W. Milam kidnapped Emmett Till and told him to take off his clothes and beat him up and took his eyes out and shot him.
  • When they were done they threw him in the Tallahatchie River attached tied to the cotton-gin fan with barbed wire.
  • When the two men went to court the all-white, male jury pleaded them not guilty which I think is not fair because it’s an all-white jury not even thinking about the African American rights.
  • Emmett till will change humanity 60 years from now with black lives matter.
