Story

Public radio interview on the story of Emmett Till, the 14-year-old killed in the Mississippi Delta in the summer of 1955. His murder led to the decision by Rosa Parks, in Montgomery, Alabama, to sit in the front of a city bus. The modern civil rights movement soon began. Till's lynching is said to be the spark that united this movement.
