Mamie Till and Emmett Till

Source: Unknown / Public Picture

Emmett Till may finally be able to rest in justice after all these years.

The federal government has reopened the murder case of Emmett Till, a black teen whose horrible murder in Mississippi in 1955 after being accused of whistling at a white woman shocked the nation and helped prompt the civil rights movement.

The woman’s then-husband and another man were charged with murder but let go later that year.

The Justice Department said in a statement Thursday that it was reopening the investigation “after receiving new information” but did not say what in detail.

Could it possibly be the conspiracy that the white woman, Carolyn Donham, admitted to  Till never whistling at her years later?

In an interview, Donham said, ““Nothing that boy did could ever justify what happened to him.”

Clearing her conscious perhaps? Let’s see what the reopening of this does for justice.
