The new sign marking the spot where Emmett Till’s body is believed to have been found is made of steel, weighs 500 pounds and, the manufacturer says, it’s bulletproof. It’s the 4th sign at the memorial after others were stolen and hit with bullets.

Today would have been Emmett Till’s 78th birthday. Yet his life was cut short when he was just 14. Lynching is still not considered a federal hate crime to this day. I have a bill to make it one. It's time we confronted this dark part of our nation's history and right this wrong.

Emmett Till would be 78 today. His mother, Mamie Till-Mobley, ensured that the world saw how gruesomely her 14 year-old child was murdered. Racism isn’t disagreement. Families grieve. Communities mourn. Dreams wither. Humanity suffers. People perish. Remember Emmett Till.

Emmett Till was murdered at 14. He would’ve been 78 years old today. Racists love to shoot the sign marking where his body was found. That pockmarked plaque is the inverse of a gravestone, showing just how alive racism remains in this ugly country of ours.

Today is Emmett Till's birthday. The 14-year-old was lynched in 1955 for allegedly whistling at a white woman. His killers were acquitted by an all-white jury. He would be 78 today.
