Emmett Louis Till (July 25, 1941 – August 28, 1955) was a 14-year-old African-American who was lynched in Mississippi in 1955, after a white woman said she was offended by him in her family's grocery store.
The brutality of his murder and the fact that his killers were acquitted drew attention to the long history of violent persecution of African Americans in the United States.
"The open-coffin funeral held by Mamie Till Bradley exposed the world to more than her son Emmett Till's bloated, mutilated body.
Protected against double jeopardy, the two men publicly admitted in a 1956 interview with Look magazine that they had killed Till.
In 2004 the case was officially reopened by the United States Department of Justice.
The defense team in the 1955 trial had questioned whether the body was that of Till.
In 2004, Till's body was exhumed and positively identified.
