Emmitt Till

By: Noah Williams

     My project is on Emmett Till. He was born on July 25, 1941. He was born in Chicago, ill. He died on August 28, 1955. He died in Money, Mississippi.

   At age five he was diagnosed with polio. He was the only child. At age 14 he died. He was brutally killed. He was killed by two men. There names are Rob Bryant and J.W. milam. They killed him because he whistled at a white woman (robs wife). After they killed him they wrapped his dead body up in wire and throw him in to the river. The only way the cops knew it was him because of the ring his dad gave him, which he was wearing. They had his body ship to Chicago for the funeral. His mom had  a open casket funeral. Just so people would see racism.
