    death of innocence

    This is a heart touching book, this book will make you fell all you emotions at one time. You can fell the love they had for each other. It also shows the strength she had to fight for justice for her son. How she wanted the men who killed her baby to pay for there crime. <BR/><BR/>How she was before her time, she went out telling ppl what happened she did not kept quite she spoke up and told the truth and said hate killed my child and this is what hate did to my child. It was an act or courage when she had the open casket and let the ppl see what happened. This was a sad story and my heart go out to the family for there lost but one thing I did learn for her is keeping fighting for what is right.

    Amazing story

    The story of Emmett Till has an impact on everyone, but his story written by his mother touches you deep in your soul. I found myself crying as his mother describes the arrival in Chicago of his body and the multilation of it. The story was very detailed, a long introduction to Emmett and his family.

    Death of Innocence

    Death of innocence was a book I couldn't put down even though it made my heart ache for a mother's lost of her child in such a horrible way. I was born and raised in Mississippi, a few years younger than Emmett, but I saw the photo, and heard the stories of his death. Reading this book brought it all back, the hatred, the injustice, and just being afraid that someone in your family would be dragged from their home at night, and never saw alive again. That happened to one of my family members - Mack Charles Parker - the book recounting his death - Blood Justice, he was the last person 'officially' lynched in the United States (Mississippi -1959) - he was accused of rapping a white woman, but he was lynched by a mob that took him by force from his jail cell at night, and unspeakable horrible crimes commited against him. Our entire family was put on notice to keep our mouths shut, but we have several Mamie Tills in our family, and because of speaking out, folks had to leave their homes with nothing but the clothes on their backs just to stay alive, and to keep their family safe. I always wondered about Mrs Till, not knowing that she went on to do great things, and reading her story made her Bobo's life more than that horrible photograph. May she rest in peace.
