Today Also Marks the Anniversary of Emmett Till’s Murder
On August 28, 1955—eight years before the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom—Emmett Till was murdered in Money, Mississippi for allegedly flirting with a white store clerk, Carolyn Bryant.
Bryant’s husband, Roy, and his half brother J. W.  Milam kidnapped the 14-year-old Chicagoan from his great uncle’s home and beat him, shot him in the head, tied his body to a large metal cotton gin fan with barbed wire and dropped him into the Tallahatchie River. Three days later the teenager’s bloated, mutilated body was pulled from the river.  
Till’s mother, Mamie, insisted on an open-casket funeral for her only son so that the world might see the brutality he suffered. Two Black publications, Jet and The Chicago Defender, ran pictures of Till’s casket. 
Despite overwhelming evidence of their guilt, the two white men who killed Emmett Till were acquitted by an all-white jury. They went on to sell the story of murdering the teenager to Look magazine for $4,000.
The horrific death of Emmett Till is largely credited with intensifying the push for Black voter registration in Mississippi and serving as a catalyst for the civil rights movement in general.

Updates, which I never do

My AC still is broken and the repair guy who is also my cousin’s husband still hasn’t come back since he took it apart. Grand.

Last Thursday night I noticed I had a HUGE bruise on my left arm and no recollection of how it got there. Today is Tuesday and it is even worse and still kind of swollen. I very rarely, almost never bruise and for a bruise this big how is it that I don’t remember getting hurt? It doesn’t even hurt that much when I touch it. Weird.

I almost chopped my hair shoulder length the other day. I was getting super anxious about it and pretty much having a panic attack that made me feel absolutely sick of my long hair. I’m glad I didn’t. 

I never self harm but I often feel like doing it but I’m too too chicken to do it. I just can’t hurt myself physically, but the urge is there. I feel like wanting to cut my hair up came from that urge. 

I used to listen to music all the time, and pretty much depended on it, I was one of those “music is my life” people (isn’t everybody?) and now I went from rarely listening to music to never really doing it. Makes me feel kind of broken. But I just don’t feel like doing it.

periods help you learn how to get blood off of things which is probably why you hear more stories of men caught with murder
