Black man killed for dating white women datingolderladies com

Emmett Louis Till (July 25, 1941 – August 28, 1955) was a 14-year-old African-American who was lynched in Mississippi in 1955 after offending a white woman in a grocery store.

The brutality of his murder and the fact that his killers were acquitted drew attention to the long history of violent persecution of African Americans in the United States.

Though the exponential increase in lynching did not truly begin until the late 1880s, the upward trend had already begun a decade earlier.

Casual articles with headlines like “ A Rascal Lynched' were fairly common in the newspapers of the 1870s; already, much of the Southern public was blinded with fear and rage at the idea of a black man with a white woman.

A US Army spokesperson confirmed to Daily that James Harris Jackson served in the Army from March 2009 until August 2012.

He was a military intelligent analyst and in February 2011 reached the rank of specialist.

He spoke to 21-year-old Carolyn Bryant, the white married proprietor of a small grocery store there.
