Personal Quote:

It scared us half to death. We were almost in shock. We couldn't get out of there fast enough, because we had never heard of anything like that before. A black boy whistling at a white woman? In Mississippi? No. [on his reaction to his cousin Emmett whistling at a white woman in a grocery store]


He was a cousin of Emmett Till and one of the last people to see him alive when he was kidnapped in 1955. He was the son of a Mississippi sharecropper and was two years younger than his cousin Emmett, who had come from his home in Chicago to visit them. See more »
