What the Director of the African American History Museum Says About the New Emmett Till Revelations | @NMAAHC

“Bryant told Tyson that her claims that Till touched and harassed her were false and that she didn’t remember what had happened that evening. “Nothing that boy did could ever justify what happened to him,” she told Tyson. 

“For Bunch, the new revelations represent a chance to know the tragic story—in greater detail. It’s important to understand that story, he says, “for those who may have believed that Emmett got what he deserved. You can no longer believe that.”
