Willie Reed did not know Emmett Till, the young man whose murder in the Mississippi Delta became one of the most infamous lynchings in the history of the Jim Crow South. Mr. Reed saw him only once — on Aug. 28, 1955, during the last hours of Till’s life — in the back of a green and white Chevrolet pickup truck. Mr. Reed, a sharecropper, risked his life at 18 to appear as a surprise witness in the prosecution of the white men accused of the crime. He became the momentary hero of the Till trial, an event that helped spur the civil rights movement. Mr. Reed passed away in 2013 at a hospital in Oak Lawn, Illinois. He was 76, and he had lived in Chicago under a different name — first in secrecy and later in relative obscurity — since fleeing Mississippi for his safety over 65 years ago. For decades, he had worked as a hospital orderly. Mr. Reed knew speaking out against the defendants in the case would make him, too, a target for lynching. But he “couldn’t have walked away,” he said years later. “Emmett was 14,” Mr. Reed told the CBS News show “60 Minutes,” “and they killed him. I mean, that’s not right. . . . I knew that I couldn’t say no.

StayWoke America FakeNews RealNews @melaninvibez400 17thsoulja BlackIG17th Former Barack Obama signed legislation that allows the FBI and the Department of Justice to reopen unsolved civil rights cases. Initially titled Emmett Till Unsolved Civil Rights Crimes, the updated version of this bill now allows both agencies to bring to justice those who committed crimes prior to 1970. Named after Emmett Till, the 14-year-old boy from Chicago who was taken from his bed in the middle of night, beat and shot by two white men for allegedly whistling at a white woman, the Justice Department is being encouraged to reach out to “activists, advocates and academics working on these issues.” Other departments who will aid in resolving these cases include the Cold Case Justice Initiative at Syracuse University, Northeastern University School of Law’s Civil Rights and and Restorative Justice Project, The Georgia Civil Rights Cold Cases Project at Emory University. Introduced in 2005 by activist Alvin Sykes, Sykes vowed to Till’s mother Mamie Elizabeth Till-Mobley that he would reopen the case. Originally her son’s killers were acquitted by an all white jury for their crimes. The case was reopened in 2004 and closed three years later when a jury decided not to indict Carolyn Bryant, the woman who accused Emmett Till for whistling at her.

Decades Later, Emmett Till’s Accuser Admits She Lied- blogged by: @msjennyb- ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On August 21, 1955, 14-year-old EmmettTill arrived in Money, Mississippi to visit his uncle, Mose Wright. Three days later, Till went to a store owned by a white couple to buy bubble gum. As he left the establishment, he reportedly whistled at the 21-year-old owner, CarolynBryant. At the time, Bryant claimed Till grabbed her hand and tried to come on to her, asking for a date, which was later revealed in her testimony. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Four days after the encounter, Bryant’s husband and his half-brother, John William “J.W.” Milam, kidnapped Till, beat and shot him to death, leaving his body terribly disfigured. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The two men were arrested and charged, however with the help of an all-white, all-male jury, they were acquitted. Decades later, the woman behind the murder that helped drive the American civil rights movement, admitted to exaggerating the story that led to the mutilation of Till’s body. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Nothing that boy did could ever justify what happened to him,” Carolyn Bryant Donham is quoted saying in “The Blood of Emmett Till” by Timothy Tyson. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For years after the trial, Bryant went into hiding. She divorced, remarried, divorced and remarried again, without ever giving an interview on what really happened on August 24th at the store in Mississippi. However, in 2007, things changed when the then-72-year-old agreed to speak with Tyson. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In her conversation with Tyson, she confessed to fabricating the main part of her testimony. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “That part’s not true,” Bryant said, referring to her claim that Till tried to come on to her with verbal and physical advances.
