Emmett Till Autopsy Report on Body Injuries: How Did He Die?
Emmett Till’s autopsy reports showed a gunshot wound to his head.
The 14-year-old was on a vacation in his uncle’s in Mississippi in 1955. One day, he spoke to a 21-year-old white woman, Carolyn in a small grocery store.
According to the woman, he was flirting with her and as per unwritten law, it was unacceptable behavior for a black person to do in the country.
As a result, several nights later, two men stormed at Emmett Till’s uncle’s house and took him away. They beat him, mutilated him, and shot him in the head before dumping the teenager in a river.
This will be a difficult story to watch. But we owe it those who LIVED the experience to keep it alive.#WomenoftheMovement
