Historical Plaque Memorializing Emmett Till Vandalized—Third Time This Year!

| Revolution Newspaper | revcom.us


A historical plaque memorializing Emmett Till was vandalized on July 26, shot up with bullets—again! This was the third time, the last time only 35 days earlier. The plaque is in Glendora, Mississippi, near where the 14-year-old’s body was found in 1955 after he was lynched by racist whites. We will have more on this soon, but for now want to call our readers’ attention to this recounting of the story of Emmett Till by Bob Avakian.
