Black History: Emmett Louis Till

Emmett Louis Till was murdered because of a lie.

Think about all the black men that fall to the lies of white women. Not all white women in general, but some. In this instance, the “face of deception” belong to Carolyn Donham. For decades her conscious was seared with a hot iron but that is what hate will do to you. Now decades later, the accuser admits to her lie that caused a young black man to be brutally murdered. Carolyn Donham accused Emmet Till of flirting with her in 1955 revealed for the first time that those claims were fabricated.  Vanity Fair reports that Timothy Tyson, the author of a new book titled The Blood of Emmett Till , spoke with Carolyn Bryant Donham, who was 21-years-old when she accused Till of making verbal and physical advances towards her. Donham’s claims against Till enraged two white men, J.W. Milam and his half-brother Roy Bryant, who abducted and murdered Till three nights later. They were never convicted of that crime. Like most young black men killed today, there is no justice. Emmett Louis Till was an African-American teenager who was lynched in Mississippi at the age of 14 after reportedly flirting with a white woman. Till was from Chicago, Illinois, and visiting relatives in Money, a small town in the Mississippi Delta region. He spoke to 21-year-old Carolyn Bryant, the married proprietor of a small grocery store there. Several nights later, Bryant's husband Roy and his half-brother J. W. Milam went to Till's great-uncle's house and abducted the boy. They took him away and beat and mutilated him before shooting him and sinking his body in the Tallahatchie River. Three days later, Till's body was discovered and retrieved from the river. Was justice served? I think not.
