Kudos to Pres. Bush-Emmett Till Act Passed
Giving props when props are due…Kudos to President Bush for, on October 7th, signing into law the Emmett Till Unsolved Civil Rights Crime Act. The “Till Bill” gives the Justice Department more resources to investigate unsolved murders from the civil rights era.
The bill commemorates Emmett Till, the 14-year-old who was murdered in Mississippi in 1955.
