ICYMI: Biden honors Emmett Till and his mother

On what would have been Emmett Till’s 82nd birthday, President Biden signed a proclamation designating a national monument to honor the child who was abducted, tortured, and murdered in 1955 after being accused of whistling at a white woman. The national monument, which will include sites in Illinois and Mississippi, will also honor Till’s mother, Mamie Till-Mobley, who was instrumental in keeping the story of Till’s murder alive, and whose fierce advocacy was a catalyst for the civil rights movement.
