On August 28th, 1955, Emmett Louis Till, a 14-year-old boy, was kidnapped from his bed, dragged across Mississippi, brutally tortured, and lynched. His body was then dumped in the Tallahatchie River, mutilated. Nine days later, his mother, Mamie Till, would bury him following an open casket funeral that would shake a nation.

However, despite the brutality of the crime, the murders Roy Bryant and his half-brother J.W. Milam were acquitted by an all-white jury in the south of Money, Mississippi. Carolyn Bryant, the woman who incited the kidnapping and lynching of Emmett would not even face trial. She was never even served with the filed arrest warrant.
