Product Description
This is a 20 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on the Civil Rights - The Murder of Emmitt Till. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

The murder of Emmett Till, a 14-year old African-American boy, in August 1955 shocked the nation, and provided a catalyst for the emerging civil rights movement. A Chicago native, Till was visiting relatives in Money, MS when he was accused of harassing a local white woman.

Several days later, relatives of the woman abducted Till, brutally beating and killing him before disposing of his body in a nearby river. Till’s devastated mother insisted on a public, open casket funeral for her son, which she hoped would shed light on the systemic violence inflicted on blacks in the south.

Till’s murderers were acquitted by an all-white jury, but the events surrounding his death galvanized activists nationwide.
