Awaiting justice for Emmett Till, 65 years later The Take

    • News

Emmett Till was beaten, shot, and drowned in a river in Mississippi on August 28, 1955. His killing spurred the civil rights movement and inspired events like the historic 1963 March on Washington, where Martin Luther King Jr. spoke of his "Dream" for the country. At the tail end of a summer that’s been dominated by conversations about white supremacy and police brutality, we’re looking back at Emmett’s life and death, and the unresolved investigation into his killing.

In this episode:
