Emmett Till – A racist lynching in Mississippi

In the middle of the night, two white men kidnap the black teenager Emmett Till in the middle of nowhere in the US state of Mississippi. His body was found three days later and the 14-year-old was cruelly mistreated and lynched. In addition to the crime, the subsequent trial of the perpetrators also became a symbol of open racism in the southern United States in the mid-1950s.
