When I tell people this story and they've never heard of Till...well, it goes a long way to explain why a lot of people don't understand the context of something like #Ferguson. These are not isolated incidents. They are representative of our country. And while I can and do support the wonderful contributions that America has made to the world, I cannot ignore this. - MoTO: Team Marina
Do they still include Emmett Till in education plans? We heard his story in middle school and high school history classes growing up. - Steve C Team Marina
It's spotty, Steve. My daughter brought it to her high school instructor's attention (I don't think she'd heard of it). I believe her middle school teacher had. - MoTO: Team Marina
His story is often covered here, though it was not in my time- I admit I did not know the full details. - Pete : Team Marina
We didn't learn about it when I was in school, but then again, we never made it past World War II in history class because we'd run out of school days every time. - Katy S
I learned about it officially in college, but heard about it growing up. I remember as a kid seeing an interview clip from tv of his mother calling the trial a "farce." I didn't know the word and looked it up in the dictionary. So the meaning of the word "farce" has always been associated with Emmett Till's murder for me. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
My great aunt Lois was somewhere on the continuum of what T. Coates calls "The Politics of Respectability". She didn't subscribe to the notion that black people had to work be "good enough" for acceptance in America. Rather, despite what whites thought of us (and we never were going to be "good enough"), we still had to make things better for ourselves, in spite of the barriers. That... more... - MoTO: Team Marina
This is the first I have heard of Emmett Till. I feel cheated by my education. - Jenny H.
I knew about him, but probably because I grew up in Chicago. He's actually buried near where I grew up. When they exhumed him about ten years ago, I could see where they were working as I drove past on my way to and from work. Actually, his exhumation set off another scandal with the cemetery as it was discovered they weren't keeping records or burying properly. - Katie

No but got them out of the house and that is a benefit in it self. - Me
I have to wonder if that's just more an indication of how crap the job market is in general - only the kids who don't need summer jobs are able to pull out of that, not due to skipping, but the other factors (wealth, connections, education.) - Jennifer Dittrich
