When fourteen-year-old Emmett Till left Chicago to visit family in 1955, no one ever thought he wouldn’t come home. Although Till fell victim to the rules of a society characterized by prejudice and hate, his death was not in vain. Till’s death was the event that sparked the American Civil Rights Movement.
Crestview Local Schools will be hosting cousins of Emmett Till, Wheeler Parker and Simeon Wright, author of Simeon’s Story. The Traveling Emmett Till Exhibit will also be on display.
