Biden Hosts Screening of Film About Lynching of Emmett Till
"So this has been mentioned by others. I am sure, but I did not mention it, and I think I need to. Comment made by the most, I believe vicious man to ever be president of the United States, Joe Biden. I never spoke this way with Clinton or Obama. So this is not because he's a Democrat. He is vicious because he's a Democrat, but he, I'm not attacking him because he's Democrat. Being on the left makes you a worse person, there is no doubt in my mind about that. He become, if you're not angry, you're not a leftist. What he said may be one of the most vile things a president of the United States has ever said. Since 17 76. Although what year it did Washington assume the presidency? Was it 76? No, no. I didn't think so. So. Really 1790 would be really 1790s, 14 years after saying we're an independent country. Since the late 18th century, he watched the till, lynched for simply being black. With white crowds, white families, this is from American greatness. Gathered to celebrate the spectacle. By the way, let me comment on that. I have seen these pictures. For those of you who think humans are basically good, human nature is basically good. How do you explain people? Celebrating at the lynching of a human being. Because of its color. I look at these people and I think, are we members of the same species? Anyway, taking pictures of the bodies and mailing them as postcards. As the American great miss Wright, which is a conservative apiece, conservatives hate racism much more than leftists do. Hard to believe that was done. And then so this is anyway, this is what he said. This is a quote, so to be, I have to be very, I don't have an cult Mark, so that was my error. Lynched for simply being black. This is what Biden said. After watching till. Nothing more, with white crowds, white families gathered to celebrate the spectacle taking pictures of the bodies and mailing them as postcards, hard to believe but that was what was done. Okay. And then he added, and some people still want to do that.

"emmett till" Discussed on The Officer Tatum Show
"Ladies, welcome back to the office Tatum show. So Joe Biden goes on this rant about teal, the movie is probably incredible movie, but you know, they can't, they can't stop victimizing black people and making black people feel like their whole legacy in America just being a victim. Emmett Till in my personal opinion was not a typical situation a young man was lynched and murdered, and it started with, I guess, the accusation I mean, there's so many rumors floating around and nobody knows what's true and what's not true. But there was an accusation that he had whistled at a white woman or a flirted with a white woman. She went and told her brothers and they went to Emmett Till's uncle's house and Emmett Till's uncle allowed him to go with the men because they were just going to intimidate him. Rough them up a little bit because he had no business doing what he was doing according to them and I'm assuming that the uncle acquiesced to their request. He let him go, they end up killing them, they ended up putting barb wire around his neck and dumping him in a shallow water and his mother had an open casket. And to show the world what they had done to Emmett Till. And to be honest, this was a rare occurrence of this nature, but it was horrifying, nonetheless, and, you know, those two men are going to have a special place in Hades. If they haven't repented for their sins of doing Emmett Till that way, however, Joe Biden always, you know, they always got to make black people a victim, you know, this should be a month to celebrate black people, but the all they do is make movies about black failures. And lynching and poverty and I'm sick of it. As a black man, I'm sick of it because I know black people have done so much more in this country has so much more value than slavery. But let me just run down some lynching statistics for you. And I'll tell you this, and I said this a long time ago, you can look it up yourself tuskegee institute has this as evidence in archived for your review.

Lawsuit seeks white woman's arrest in Emmett Till kidnapping
"A lawsuit has been filed by a relative of Emmett Till, trying to force the arrest of a white woman whose accusations ultimately led to the lynching of the black teen in 1955. Patricia Stirling of Jackson Mississippi is a cousin of Emmett Till. She filed a federal lawsuit, asking the sheriff of Lafleur county to serve an arrest warrant on Carolyn Bryant, who recanted her story. She's the one who accused the 14 year old till visiting from Chicago of making advances toward her in a store, a witness said he had whistled at her, which violated Mississippi's racial codes. A reexamination of the case found in 1955 arrest warrant had been issued but never served because the sheriff at the time said he did not want to quote bother the woman because she was raising two children. The lawsuit alleges if Carolyn Bryant hadn't falsely claimed Emmett Till assaulted her. Her husband and his half brother would have never gone into such a rage that led to the teens murder and mutilation. Carolyn Bryant donham has since remarried. She's now in her late 80s, living in North Carolina and Kentucky in recent years. I'm Jackie Quinn

'Deadly brew': Amid soaring crime, Memphis cops lowered bar
"Former recruiters for the Memphis police department say that in recent years there's been a growing desperation to fill hundreds of slots which they say leads to lower standards. Alvin Davis, a lieutenant in charge of recruiting before he retired last year, says police recruits were increasingly coming from jobs at McDonald's and Dunkin drive-throughs. David says when interviewing new recruits some would say they were becoming a police officer strictly for the money of $15,000 signing bonus, Memphis police have not responded to requests for comment of the 5 former police officers now charged with the brutal beating death of Tyree Nichols, two of them, Emmett Martin the third and Demetrius Haley appeared to have been arrested in the past, according to files from the state oversight agency, peace officers standards, and training commission, but information concerning those arrests was blacked out.

Chris Kohls Reviews the Performances in the Original 'Blade Runner'
"Into Blade Runner, go and see it, I've seen it. It's there, it's real. Let's talk about the rest of the cast Emmett Walsh of Byron James, I think this must have been her first or second movie. You look at Chris and Daryl Hannah as an actor, talk to me about these performances. Yeah, I mean, it's similar to what I said about the last couple of films. There is this sort of cavalier nature to the way that people talk. I know this is kind of supposed to be this stylized film the war, but everything does come across as naturalistic. And in a way that they don't really act and people don't really act this way anymore. And I really loved it. I especially loved when the cop was going through the list of androids that he has to kill. I mean, just the way that he talks about it is I felt like it was like I was really, I was really there. This was a real life thing. These guys are who they are pretending to be. And I don't know, I don't know how they cast this so unbelievably well. Rutger Hauer, how do you tell people, okay, act a little bit unnatural like an Android. But don't overdo it, but don't overdo it. Yeah, yeah, just so subtly that people get the hint that there's something a little bit off. But, you know, and this guy, he was in everything in the 80s, like being a psycho. You know, he pulls off that weird. I think there's something about, in the 1980s, there was something about how they figured out that like, okay, let's cast normal looking folks to be the good guys, and let's cast people that are a bit off looking to be the bad guys. And now it's sort of reversed. They're like, oh, the good guys are all the weird looking folks. And the bad guys are all like the very handsome attractive people. They kind of messed it up in our world. In our current time, Hollywood. I think Harrison Ford, you know, I wouldn't have thought Harrison Ford would be a good choice just because he was so famous from Star Wars. In the glass. I'm sorry. Subtle things. What an amazing moment.

"Outcomes and increase efficiency of healthcare practices and organizations, learn more at Athena health dot com and Orion pictures presenting till, based on the true story of mamie till mobley's fight for justice for her son, Emmett Till, starring Danielle dead weiler, now playing in theaters. This is morning edition from NPR news. I'm Rachel Martin. And I'm Steve inskeep. Good morning. Chinese leader Xi Jinping orchestrated exactly the outcome he intended it last week's Communist Party Congress. He was confirmed for a third term in office. Yet as we've been reporting investors were unimpressed and Chinese stocks fell. NPR's John ruit has been asking what unsettles people in business. For clues about why investor sentiment has soured in China look no further than the central city of Wuhan, where the COVID-19 pandemic got its start nearly three years ago. The streets are really empty today. The situation in Wuhan is getting worse. Rohn rabal runs a company that imports French wine and a wine bar. This week she's getting nervous, though. The city has been reporting a couple dozen COVID cases each day, and some parts of town are already sealed off, thanks to the zero COVID policy. The whole city may be locked down tomorrow or the day after. So I'm just doing the deliveries myself immediately on the same day the orders come in. Lockdowns have been unrelenting in China and they're taking a toll on businesses like rebalance across the country. Her sales are already down 40 to 50% this year. My wine bar is closed already. I'm not allowed to open it. So if I can't do delivery, I'll have a big problem. Zero COVID is just one of many policies prompting investors in businesses to rethink their plans in China. There's also the crackdown on Internet firms, a wobbly real estate market, and a growing focus in policy pronouncements on equality that has put some of the country's wealthy on edge. All are seen as having one thing in common, according to Christopher better, a political economy expert at the research firm gav kal dragonomics in Hong Kong. They're driven by Xi Jinping. Now China's unrivaled leader. Many of his core policies that he's promoted are just they're clearly negative for markets. There's just no escaping that. The leadership lineup announced last weekend was seen to be short on people with economic reformist credentials, and long on she loyalists. The outcome clearly from a market perspective meant just less scope for anything that opposes she's convictions on economic policy. But Chinese markets were falling and investor sentiment was already wavering before the party Congress. A survey published this week by the American Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai, highlights some of the reasons. Sean Stein is chairman of am cham Shanghai. If we look at the level of optimism, it's the lowest level we have on record. Lockdowns in COVID policies are a big part of it. He says, there's also less transparency now and more regulatory hurdles. On top of it all, is the growing antagonism between the United States and China. I think as technological competition, other aspects of economic competition between the United States and China continue to increase, it's going to become more difficult for many of our companies to operate in more costly to comply. And that reality has been sinking in. Only 30% of the company's am cham surveyed are increasing investment in China this year. One in 6 companies said they're considering moving some or all of their operations elsewhere. Alicia Garcia herrero is chief economist for Asia Pacific at the French bank and the Texas. She says she was kind of amused by the market reaction to the leadership lineup this week because in her view, it almost doesn't matter which bureaucrats Xi Jinping surrounds himself with at this point. China's economy is decelerating rapidly. I mean, no Superman team. Can stop this. She says that's because of structural problems. A shrinking and aging population, an oversupply of infrastructure and capacity, high debt, and falling return on investment. And those things she says are like forces of gravity. Hard to overcome.

Apple's New Movie 'Emancipation' Is Oscar Gold
"Apple held first showing Saturday for the big movie coming out with Will Smith called Emancipation Antoine fuqua, directing it, stars Will Smith as an enslaved man who recovered from a really bad whipping that nearly killed him. And then he had to go brave through the swamps of Louisiana, armed with only his wits to escape these cold blooded slave hunters and be free. So both he and fuqua made their first public comments about the film in this follow-up discussion they had for the black caucus foundation's legislative conference in Washington D.C., there's no date yet, but this is the most solid indication that the film is going to arrive for award season and it's going to be a real rough one for Will Smith after he lost his mind and smacking Chris Rock because this is the kind of movie that gets a lot of Oscar attention. And it's been really it's been really been anticipated because Apple won the rights there was a record breaking auction and they won the rights to make it, it's the stuff Oscars are made of, you know? Playing Venus and Serena Williams father that's one thing. That's a lifetime movie. Playing a slave who went through this hell? It's so different. Back in 1863, the inspiration for this movie came when there were photographs taken of this slave named Peter. And he had just enjoined enslaved, he was just joined the Union Army to help him find his family. And the photographs was seen all over the world above his back being whipped and it just galvanized everybody against slavery as it being barbaric, of course. And they were those images were a symbolic beginning to like, we started seeing Emmett Till, you know, then he got Ronde king and of course lately got George Floyd, I mean, this slave, Peter. That's the man who should have four funerals and a hologram in the night sky. Not a crackhead ex con George Floyd.

"Mississippi grand jury declines to indict Emmett tills accusers by Michael Goldberg. A grand jury in Mississippi has declined to indict the white woman whose accusations set off the lynching of black teenager Emmett Till nearly 70 years ago, despite revelations about an unserved arrest warrant, and an unpublished memoir by the woman, a prosecutor said Tuesday. After hearing more than 7 hours of testimony from investigators and witnesses, a Lafleur county grand jury last week determined there was insufficient evidence to indict Carolyn Bryant donham, on charges of kidnapping and manslaughter. Lafleur county district attorney Duane Richardson said in a news release. It is now increasingly unlikely that donham, who is now in her 80s, will ever be prosecuted for her role in the events that led to till's lynching. The reverend Wheeler Parker junior, Emmett Till's cousin, and the last living witness to till's 1955 abduction, said Tuesday's news is unfortunate, but predictable. The fact remains that the people who abducted tortured and murdered emett did so in plain sight. And our American justice system was and continues to be set up in such a way that they could not be brought to justice for their heinous crimes, Parker said. An email and voicemail seeking comment from donum son, Tom Bryant, weren't immediately returned Tuesday. A group searching the basement of the Lafleur county courthouse in June, discovered the unserved arrest warrant, charging donham, then husband Roy Bryant, and brother in law JW milam, and tells abduction in 1955. While the men were arrested and acquitted on murder charges until subsequent slaying, donum, 21 at the time, and 87 now, was never taken into custody. In an unpublished memoir obtained last month by The Associated Press, donham said she was unaware of what would happen to the 14 year old till, who lived in Chicago, and was visiting relatives in Mississippi when he was abducted, killed and tossed in a river. She accused him of making lewd comments and grabbing her while she worked alone at a family store in money, Mississippi. Dunham said in the manuscript, that the men brought till to her in the middle of the night for identification. But that she tried to help the youth by denying it was him. Despite being abducted at gunpoint from a family home by Roy Bryant and milam, the 14 year old identified himself to the man, she claimed. Till's battered, disfigured body was found days later in a river, where it was weighted down with a heavy metal fan. The decision by his mother mamie till mobley to open till's casket for his funeral in Chicago, demonstrated the horror of what had happened, and added fuel to the civil rights movement. The Justice Department in 2004 had opened an investigation of till's killing after it received inquiries about whether charges could be brought against anyone still living. A department said the statute of limitations had run out on any potential federal crime, but the FBI worked with state investigators to determine if state charges could be brought. In February 2007, a Mississippi grand jury declined to indict anyone, and the Justice Department announced it was closing the case. The Justice Department then reopened the investigation after a 2017 book quoted Donna as saying she lied when she claimed that till grabbed her, whistled, and made sexual advances toward her. Relatives have publicly denied that donham, who is in her 80s, recanted her allegations about dill. But federal officials announced last year that they were once again closing their investigation, saying there was insufficient evidence to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that she lied to the FBI..

The Breakdown with Shaun King
"emmett till" Discussed on The Breakdown with Shaun King
"Today is one of those days. Because one of the ugliest most egregious actions to ever happen in modern American history. And we're talking about a country that has a lot of ugliness on its name. Was the brutal disgusting lynching of a teenage boy named Emmett Till. Kind sweet soul. Who would still be alive today? Who would probably be a grandfather in Chicago, a great grandfather in Chicago? Whose peers whose family is still alive. Still fighting for justice in spite of the fact that this boy was lynched 67 years ago. And he was lynched, deep in the heart of Mississippi. There on summer vacation as black families throughout the country would often do, they would return south during the summer and spend time with their country cousins. And it was just a black tradition. When you had moved up to New York or Chicago or even Ohio, other places would be to go back down south and spend time with family. And learn about country life and deepen those relationships and in some ways the lynching of Emmett Till changed that tradition. And that's not talked about enough, but he was there from Chicago with his family. And they just went to a local corner store, and there was a white woman there that lied and said Emmett Till, who was a child, sexually harassed her. Said something profane to her, whistled at her a biographer has since said that Carolyn Bryant Dunham, the white woman who made that lie up, told him that she made the whole thing up. For years, for 65 years, it was always said that Emmett did whistle at the woman. According to the biographer who interviewed Carolyn Bryant Dunham, he said that she said all of that was a lie that she made the whole thing up. Whether she made it up or it happened. And of course, I don't believe it happened. She went home and told her husband and her husband's friends and family. That she was sexually harassed by a black boy at the store. And those men, with the information and intelligence, if that's what you can call it, from Carolyn Bryan Dunham, proceeded to plan and execute a lynching of Emmett Till. They took him from his family's home, and I will not repeat the brutal, horrifying things they did to him. A month later, his disfigured body, which is one of the most notorious images from the entire 20th century of America, his disfigured body was found and his mother mamie till. A brilliant courageous woman said, you know what? I'm gonna force you all to see what they did to my boy. And had an open casket funeral. The men, who murdered Emmett Till, talked about it all over town. Admitted doing it. They were all found not guilty. But one woman was never held responsible, and she still alive. And in spite of Emmett Till's family, begging and pleading. The county government, the state government of Mississippi and the federal government of multiple administrations. Including the Obama administration, including the Biden administration. The Biden administration recently said, you know what? We're not going to do anything about this. Which is the Biden administration's MO and my question is this and it's the only question I really want to press today. As some researchers just dug through some records and found this arrest warrant for Carolyn Brian Dunham, why did no one else find that? Since some researchers just found it on their own. If any of these federal investigations from the FBI from the Obama administration from the Biden, if any of you were actually serious, why didn't you find that? But she's still alive, can still be prosecuted. And here's the thing, just this very week, a 101 year old Nazi, I mean, a literal Nazi from Nazi Germany was just prosecuted. He's a 101 years old. If you can prosecute those bastards for the ugliness that they did, as you should, of course, Carolyn Bryant Dunham. And any man or woman or anybody else that participated not only in the lynching of Emmett Till but in any lynching in all of American history, if you participated in white supremacist terrorism, you should be tracked down and held accountable period point blank dot com, but I want to know. I have a question. For the Biden administration. Did you actually send anybody to look for records? Did you all just think about it and just say, you know what, we're not going to do that. I think you did. I think you're just saying, you know what? We're okay. No, never mind. We're not going to do that. That's not how Nazis are treated. But let me be very clear because I know the family of Emmett Till these people were the equivalent of Nazis to that family. They turned that whole family upside down. They turned Mississippi upside down, it was one of the most devastating catastrophic white supremacist murders in all of American history and nobody, not a single soul. Was held responsible even though they bragged all over town that they did it. And that's not hyperbole. All of their names are on public record, Google it for yourself. And after they were found not guilty, they literally did media interviews explaining what they did. And sane. Yes, Carolyn Bryant Dunham should be held responsible. Right now, immediately period. Arrest her. Arrest her then figure the rest out. That's what you should do. Take care everybody. Break it down. The great right now. I'm Tiffany Hawkins. I'm Alan boomer.

We've been in touch with the city of Chicago and they've committed collaboration to working on this statewide tracing effort. The digital database contains over a 100,000 gun trace records dating back to 2009 from around 200 Illinois law enforcement agencies.

"Of this. I think some people are just reaching for answers for understanding some people think that Emmett Till moment is going to bring about a change in the minds of the people that have the power to make, you know, to change the gun laws. And I don't think that it's going to. I mean, it hasn't done it in all these years. I imagine though there's also a risk in repeatedly running images or footage or audio of these graphic traumatic instances on a loop because you don't know who's going to be seeing it and you also don't know the trauma that it's going to be causing to people who see it. Exactly. I think that's something that Ali talked a lot about when we were on our interview too, even after my story around I spoke to her and she said, these are images that she and her family are still living with. Over 60 years later. So imagine all the different outlets now that they can actually access those photos that not just her family, but other people can access those photos. That's a big deal over 60 years later that this terrible tragedy happened to a family member. And their photo is just out there on the Internet. Television was to us as to what the Internet is, social media. And up until that point the world could not see or did not know what was going on. It might have been in a magazine or a newspaper, but it was local. It wasn't gone international. It's different now. I mean, every time you turn on the TV, it's not valid. It's so many different places. There's so many times. It's like, I think maybe you do become in order to survive, maybe you do come a little bit desensitized. And I think the big thing in a lot of this that I found is so often, I think people are quick to say, well, just put the photos out there, but I think there's also that step back period that folks want to take where they have to remind themselves that their family members did not ask to be the face of gun violence or mass shootings. It was a happenstance thing for them. And so I think for her, she said that it's often comes down to figuring out why do people need to see those images. And even now, she said, you know, over all this time, she is in her 70s, and she is still haunted by those images. She doesn't even need to look them up. She says, because that image of Emmett in his casket still haunts her in a lot of ways. It was very disturbing, very grotesque. So it did have a devastating effect on me. Even now, when I see things and hear things, it still brings tears to my eyes. Because when I jump, when I do a reporter target, the tears just come, I don't know where they come from. It's not something that I have control over. So even when you're thinking about the sandy hook families, when they first caught when that people were hoping that they would release photos of their children, those families rallied with the Connecticut legislature and said, we don't want that. Look at what happened to sandy hook families. A Connecticut judge has found InfoWars host and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones liable for damages in lawsuits brought by parents of children killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. The parents of several children sued Jones over his claims that the massacre was a hoax. So there's a lot of potential risk there. And I think it's very important that we look to history, but there's also something to be said about understanding that history is only a guide. It can't necessarily be the end all be all for how we make change and affect change. And it's also very easy for people who are not affected to say, oh, the families should step up, you know, their victims of this either a lynching of racialized terror or gun massacres. You should step up and be an advocate. So more of these deaths don't happen again, where sometimes the family just wants to mourn and they want to mourn in privacy. Well, and that's what I found when I was talking to Jesse Salisbury from the Emmett Till interpretive center when I interviewed him. He said, as admirable, for example, as mamie till mobley was, to have the courage and the gumption to show what happened to her son, that was still a very difficult decision for her. She made that decision, but she didn't make it lightly. And she also knew that in a bigger way as all you told me when we were on the phone the other day, she said, miss mobley really wanted her son's death to live on in infinity. So people would understand the ramifications of racial violence to understand like what hatred could look like in real time if something isn't done about it. We got a lot of positive things. I think because she released the photo and because she showed the world that's how we got a lot of our civil rights and we got a lot more people having to understanding and comment on board to fight for the rights and to fight for a lynching bill against those types of crimes. They saw a need for it. So I think it was an educating moment. It was a reality check for many as well. At the same time, you know, as mister Salisbury said, you know, you can't tell people how to channel their grief. We've seen it over the many, many years of mass shootings where you have families who become anti gun violence advocates who some of them run for Congress. I am an unwilling participant in this movement. I would not have signed up for this, but I am here today for my son, Trayvon Martin. You've seen people find ways to channel their grief. And it's also okay if someone does not wish to channel their grief in a way that puts them in the public's eye because in doing so, that means that they are susceptible to having even more members of the media, just like ourselves, asking them questions. Hoping for interviews. It just keeps putting them out there when sometimes people need space to grieve. Emmett's cousins, they said, you know, it could maybe help. But at the same time, change takes time. And they said, it took them a long time to recognize that they wanted to step up, that they really wanted to be the best stewards possible of Emmett's name of maybe till mobley's legacy and what she did at that time. So those are the big things that they've come to realize as they've been trying to do that activism work in terms of keeping Emmett's name alive. But it's tough, it doesn't come without trauma and having to, in some ways, compartmentalize some of that trauma from not only remembering how you were, where you were when you first heard that he died, but also having to relive that every single time. Yeah, and it does take time sometimes. I mean, look, just a couple of years ago, President Biden finally signed a law that bans lynching in the United States. Yeah, that was only in March. Jeez. That that happened. And it took centuries for that to even be a thing. And I think people forget how we know Congress moves very slow. Particularly if they don't feel motivated to do anything. And I think in a lot of ways, as people continue to think about how we need this Emmett Till moment, and again, as Emmett's family members said is a couple of other folks in my story said, it's not as if it's going to change is going to happen overnight, even after people see these photos. We are seeing images of police brutality and violence. We are seeing just a variety of different violence from various levels of institutions that are not necessarily affecting people so much to the point where we're changing laws and policies and systems. So I think this is another thing that Emmett's family really wants people.

"And so she was so fascinating to talk to because she does media interviews a decent amount, obviously, especially over recent years, but she said this was a hard question for her to consider an answer because she sees it herself every single time. Because you do see it, you know, you see it on the news now. Maybe if they show it in the magnitude of all of the even the bodies of what have you, it's very difficult for me to say or do a comparison. I think they're all, I think, hate crimes. Emmett was lynched. He was hung from a tree. Maybe just a tactic which was different. Some of these incidences, whether it's mass shooting, whether it's Breonna Taylor incident, I'm going, you know, okay, here we go again. Everything is going right back to Emmett Till the modern day Emmett Till. They all do a comparison. George Floyd played mon Martin, same thing. And in a sense, they are comparable, but in another sense they have different. Any time violence is happening, particularly against black people or just in general in our culture, Emmett's name comes up, and she sees it because she gets to Google alerts whenever his name comes up. How does the family of Emmett Till feel every time there is a massacre and there's the inevitable phone call or the inevitable email for comic connecting what happened to Emmett, his lynching to whatever massacre happened today. For them, it's become expected in a lot of ways. I mean, they don't do media all of the time, but they also understand that, especially the family members who are consistently in the media, consistently actively taking steps to keep Emmett's name alive and keep me till mobley's legacy alive too. They've realized this comes with the territory. We'll have more after this break. During the 75th year anniversary of Jackie Robinson becoming the first black player allowed to play in modern Major League Baseball, the history channel in association with MLB present after Jackie. Executive produced by LeBron James and maverick Carter, Stanley Nelson and director Andre gaines. After Jackie explores the overlooked story of the second wave of trailblazing black baseball players, Curt flood, Bill white and bob Gibson, and how they continued Robinson's legacy by fighting battles on and off the field for a more inclusive America. Stream now only on the history channel app. Marissa, our families of uvalde victims planning to have open caskets. So in the last couple of weeks there have already been some funerals. I believe the last one is happening sometime this month. And I think some families have had open caskets, but they haven't had the media actually photographing or taking video of their children in the casket. And I don't believe any family has really looked to really get those images published even. So who's pushing this idea that if families share those graphic images of uvalde victims that that might push people to confront the horrors of gun massacres? What I have seen online has been a combination of people. It's people who are truly fed up with gun violence and mass shootings happening in our society. And think that this might be the best way forward, is also people in the media who have said media outlets need to take more action more stringent action like publishing those photos or those videos to really show our audiences what this violence actually looks like, particularly against children. One of the people I spoke to in my story is David boardman. He is the dean of temple university's college journalism. But he is also the former editor of the Seattle times. And when he was one of the first media people after the volley shooting to say, I never thought in all my years as a journalist, I'd say this, but maybe this is the time we need to actually start publishing these photos. So he said, if he were in a newsroom today, leading a newsroom today, he would try to wait to ask families to make the decision about publishing images, but he'd also said he wanted to do as respectfully as possible and he'd also make sure that they were aware of the potential backlash of doing something like that and how these photos could be misused for misinformation or disinformation purposes. He said, I think so often I took a more conservative approach when I was an editor. Well, publishing images because I wanted to think about harm, I wanted to think about potential trauma, the families and victims might be facing if such photos were published, but what I found now is what we're doing is not working. These politicians are not changing their mind on gun violence. And gun policies that have been introduced in Congress. Even at the state level, state legislature level. But then you also have some politicians who are also saying that we need some type of bigger, again, paradigm shift to really move forward the conversation on gun policy. What did Ollie Gordon the cousin of Emmett Till think about that idea? She said for her, she is not sure if it would work. I don't think that opening the casket today in this time would have had the same effect that it had 67 years ago. Not because it's not sad or shocking, but because people are so used to seeing those images in those videos these days. And not a show because they're going on YouTube or going somewhere on the Internet is because it's on your television. It's almost like, okay, let me turn the TV on today and see who shot who. The television news will show you cycle after cycle of the same videos. You have newspaper outlets like it ourselves. It will post some of these videos. Even with George Floyd, I kept showing it on TV. I was unable. I had to close my eyes and just turn the channel. And my heart went out for his family that had to be subjected to that every single day. On the hour on the hour, it was a bit much. It's inescapable in a lot of ways, she said. And so for her, she's not sure if that is going to be the way. As sad as it is, she's not sure if it will still resonate with people. Particularly since, as she put it, you know, it's a big deal for people to feel like their guns are being taken away from them, even if there are children involved.

"Most important is what do we do with that? You could see graphically what had been done to Emmett, then you heard the story of why this had been done to him and why it was lynched, and then that photo stuck with you after the man who did this to him were acquitted of anything to have done with the lynching. Exactly. Exactly. And that's also was another reason why there was such an outrage over what happened to Emmett, not just because of the sheer violence, but the violence committed against a child, because people are so quick to make black boys older than what they are. Or older than what they actually are. So Emmett was 14. That's still a child. And so the idea that this could happen to a child really bothered people, it obviously created a wave of grief in a wave of trauma for his own family to bear witness to that. And I think in a lot of ways, that's one of the moments that people consistently go back to as an idea of not only looking at violence, but what we need to do as a society to potentially have this major cultural paradigm shift. And that photo was one of the reasons why civil rights movement was fueled. People became so outraged that people in other states learned about what happened to him and realized something more collective had to be done. Do you think then it was inevitable that people would make the connection between Emmett Till and ovale? In some ways, yes, I think any time it comes to thinking about children, images of children, that stick with you, people think of Emmett. They think of what happened to him, and again, the shocking violence of the shooting. In a lot of mass shootings, particularly sandy hook, even, has bothered people in the last near decades since at least sandy hook happened. Columbine bothered people because those were also kids who died. Even if they were teenagers, they were still kids. There was somebody's kid. So I think that people making that parallel was an interesting one because this is one of the few times where people actually want to use history as a way to drive policy to drive change. But again, there's all these other factors, I think, that people don't often consider when saying, well, these parents should just show the photos of their loved ones and how they looked when they were shocked. I think people often underestimate the implications of doing that. And that's why I set out to really talk to Emmett Till's family. I think so often people will mention Emmett Till's name, and I saw some outlets actually mention his name. Me a little paragraph about Emmett, but I just kept reading the stories and thinking, well, has anyone actually reached out to consider how his family feels about him being brought up? Now, as it relates to the gun control debate, I think that's important that they actually have a say or have at least an opinion on what that means for them as a family because every time his name is brought up, that's a trauma for them. That image still hunts them. And what did his family say about that comparison? One of the people I spoke to for my reporting, I talked to Ollie Gordon, who is one of Emmett's cousins. I wanted to reach out to see what your thoughts are on the idea of if another Emmett Till moment is needed. That's a loaded question. I have seen that a lot as I roll through the Facebook makeup and moment of Emmett Till moment. She was 7 years old at the time when Emmett died, but she was living in the same house as him. In Chicago, then he went off to Mississippi to go visit family, and then he never came back. The people that kill him and they set out to do just that. Because he was black and because he went against the rules that they had in Mississippi at the time the Jim Crow rules. And they meant to do that to send a message to the black people to.

"You sought out the family of Emmett Till. Why? You know, after I read all the coverage so far at the time of the shooting and I was reading about all the children who died and the teachers who died and the parents reacting and the police responds, I noticed on Twitter and just across social media platforms, people were talking about the need for the paradigm shift for how we think about gun violence, how we think about how children are impacted by gun violence. And I notice people kept saying, we need an Emmett Till moment. His body was pulled up from the tallahatchie river. It was badly mutilated and bloated. This became a large event in the civil rights movement because his mother chose to have an open casket funeral in Chicago. You know, she turned her broken heartedness into a weapon for justice and made her private Aggie. A public cause. We come not just to remember Emmett, but we come to commit ourselves in his name. To fight all the conditions, the murdered him. The conditions are still murder our children today across this country. This idea of showing the public showing the world the damage that guns can do to a small child's body. There were black people lynched before Emmett, there were black people lynched after him. What is it though about his story that continues to resonate over 60 years later after it happened? The big thing at the time is in 1955 when Emmett was killed, television was just starting to come out. There was no social media. There was no Internet. If you really wanted to get the news, you had to find your paper, find your magazine. And particularly for black folks, you really had to go to the black press to get your news. You could not rely on white led media organizations to actually cover this at a time because they too were in bed with white supremacists and white supremacy and condoned a lot of the racist violence that we saw at that time. So you really had only so many outlets as a black person to get your news to really have an understanding of what was going on other states with black people. But mamie till mobley, Emmett Till's mother said at the time, after she figured out what happened to her son after she saw what happened to her son, the way his face was brutalized and swollen and beaten, she famously said, let the world see. And she invited jet magazine, a black magazine, to photograph Emmett actually at the funeral, open casket, showing people what he actually looked like when he died. And those photos really haunted people. That was one of the first times people really saw in real time and published format what racist violence looked like. What hatred could really look like? I lost my innocence. I saw violence that I saw hatred that I had never experienced before. And for years, I walked around with a chip on my shoulder. I did all I could to try to get even. I think so often people mention Emmett's name because it resonated with them. It's been told mostly as a southern horror movie as a kind of redneck Frankenstein. I would argue this one of the few historical instances of people can point to as a collective unit and say, this.
