Roughly six decades after the acquittal of two white men who killed Emmett Till, a new revelation has come out of the case. Specifically, the testimony given by Carolyn Bryant was made up:

In a new book, The Blood of Emmett Till (Simon & Schuster), Timothy Tyson, a Duke University senior research scholar, reveals that Carolyn—in 2007, at age 72—confessed that she had fabricated the most sensational part of her testimony. “That part’s not true,” she told Tyson, about her claim that Till had made verbal and physical advances on her. As for the rest of what happened that evening in the country store, she said she couldn’t remember. (Carolyn is now 82, and her current whereabouts have been kept secret by her family.)

The article has more details about the events that take place prior to the trial and is well worth a read: http://www.vanityfair.com/news/2017/...mett-till-case

It's such a horrifying story and I can't imagine how much courage and strength Mamie Till had to show the world the injustice her son faced. Even more saddening that cases like that still go on to this day as racism lives on here in the USA. I think it was pretty obvious that whole trial was a sham. How can she live with herself?

I don't feel sympathy for her, but she was probably forced to say it or she would have caught hell herself.


Amazing you can kill a black person just because, amazing how time has changed

Actually my dad retires this year. But it's scary to think he was born earlier that year.

You should probably add to the OP that she died in 2014.

You could argue she didn't knew what would happen because of her lie, but she probably knew her husband as well as anyone.
