Summary
The 1955 murder of a black Chicago youth, visiting family in Mississippi (for allegedly whistling at a white woman) preceded the trial of J.W. Milam and Roy Bryant--accused of kidnapping and murdering 14-year-old Emmett Till. The all-white, all-male jury hastily acquitted the two white defendants. This was considered the first full-scale media event to spur the civil rights movement. It also set in motion the will and determination of Mamie Till-Mobley, Emmett's mother--a woman who would pull herself back from the brink of suicide to become a teacher and inspire hundreds of black children throughout the country
