Emmett Louis "Bobo" Till, born July 25, 1941, was a 14-year old Black teenager from Chicago, who was murdered in Money, Mississippi, after reportedly flirting with a white woman (Carolyn Bryant) ... Yeah, um, ok.
Around 2:30 in the morning on this day, the woman's husband Roy and his half-brother J. W. Milam, arrived at Till's great-uncle's house where they took Till, transported him to a barn, beat him and gouged out one of his eyes, before shooting him through the head and disposing of his body in the Tallahatchie River weighting it with a 70-pound (32 kg) cotton gin fan tied around his neck with barbed wire. His body was discovered and retrieved from the river three days later.
Till was returned to Chicago and his mother insisted on a public funeral service with an open casket to show the world the brutality of the killing.
Bryant and Milam were acquitted of Till's kidnapping and murder. Protected by double jeopardy, Bryant and Milam struck a deal with Look magazine in 1956 to tell their story to for between $3,600 and $4,000. Neither of them thought of themselves as guilty or that they had done anything wrong.
Intense security was brought to bear on the condition of civil rights for Blacks in Mississippi. Moreover, Emmett's death became emblematic of the unabashed disparity regarding justice for Black throughout the nation.
While there never will be justice for Emmett, Enstrumental will always dream for Revenge!!
Not in the literal sense, but rather in the metaphorical. Revenge being a metaphor for the fight for injustice.
And so ... "THE REVENGE OF EMMETT TILL"
