Have We Forgotten Emmett Till?

YouTube Video Narration by: Tommy Sotomayor

The brutal abduction and murder of 14-year-old Emmett Till on August 28, 1955, galvanized the emerging Civil Rights Movement.

I was touch by this video and I felt Tommy Sotomayor put forth an awesome historical narrative of an extremely troubling period focusing on the last day of life for an African American boy. He had been wrongfully accused of a crime by a white woman which caused his torturous death.
