Letter: Justice remains elusive for Emmett Till

Editor,I appreciate the articles written in the June 1 (H-F Chronicle) issue, “Family helps bring stories to life at national museum” by Jade Greear, and “Black man’s history being included in American story” by Paul Thornton. The article written by Paul Thornton is one expressing the importance of black history and also to inform the public and those who are not familiar with the Emmett Till story.  I learned on April 7, 2017, that the Attorney General was going to consider re-opening the 1955 Mississippi murder of Emmett Till. I am retired from . . .
