Good News -- Till Bill Moving Forward

The story of Emmett Till is one of the most heart-wrenching and important of the Civil Rights era. If you don't know about it, you can learn a lot more at The Untold Story of Emmett Louis Till.

Congress is finally doing the right thing and allowing DOJ to pursue justice in unsolved cases from the civil rights era (like the Till case). It obviously should have done more at the time or when such cases could've actually made a difference in people's lives, but this is a symbolic step in the right direction.
