Emmett Louis Till

Yesterday August 28th, was the 50th anniversary of the bludgeoning death of Emmett Louis Till.

Though we have come a long way, justice has yet to be served in this and many other cases from the Jim Crow era.

I urge you all to see this film as soon as you can.

UPDATE: Welcome O Dub fans. I think I shoudl add that this is a particularly interesting anniversary with all this talk about the Bell Curve.
