Live @ the Library: The Legacy & Memory of Emmett Till

The story of Emmett Till was silenced for over 50 years after his brutal murder on August 28, 1955. Discover the untold history of the injustice that followed fourteen-year-old Emmett’s trip to buy candy at Bryant’s Grocery in Money, Mississippi, where he whistled at the white store clerk. In this presentation, retired Portage Public School history teacher Jim Herm will share his research into the post-Civil War South, the legacy of Emmett Till, and the start of the Civil Rights movement. Over the past several years, he visited many of the recently opened historical sites in the south and they will be discussed in his presentation.
