We’d like to take a moment to pay homage to the life of Emmett Till…
Sixty-three years later we’re chanting Black Lives Matter still?!
Peace to the mothers that had to bury a son.
Peace to the photographer that captured the harrowing image of a stoic Mamie Till peering at her son.
When will the impunity enjoyed by Make America Great Again extremists come to an end?
Why do tough on crime conservatives fail to prosecute when the plaintiff has pale skin?
It’s been sixty-three years to date and America continues to fail the Black Youth.
Peace to the Emmett Till Generation and organizations that empower the Black Youth.
Let us never forget brother Emmett nor the brothers and sisters slain neath the blind eye of society.
Question: How can one afford a peaceful protest, while our brothers and sisters are dying violently?
