Racism has been a part of history since time began We hear stories of racist acts that turn into devastating tragedies and ones that change history In the story of fourteen year-old Emmet Till being murdered upon making a bad decision could have also led up to making people try harder with being successful with the Civil Rights movementFourteen year-old Emmet Tills lifeless body was found in the Tallahatchie River This catastrophe occurred when he flirtedwith the white lady Carolyn Bryant while she was working a shift alone Emmet was traveling to Money Mississippi when he stopped into her store with his cousin to buy some candy He lived in Illinois so racism was not as present as in Mississippi Tills cousin tried warning him about the consequences that came with the choice he was about to make but he ignored him and walked up to Carolyn Bryant He started saying things like being with white women before and tried to get a date with her Carolyn started to pull out a pistol but the boys fled before she could do anything Later that night Emmet Till was murdered by Roy Bryant and JW Milam The trial took place in September 1955 Bryant and Milam were found not guilty Things like the entire jury and Carolyn Bryant being white made a huge difference in the outcome The conclusion of being them being found not guilty opened many eyes how out of hand the racism issues were becoming If Emmet Till was not murdered then people might have not fought so hard for their Civil Rights People will not always take racism seriously but at least we have better control over it I would recommend the story of Emmet Till to everybody We should all know of the hard times back then and how our freedom has been gratefully earned The images in this book are graphic so young people reading this is not recommended
