Mamie Till Mobley – Civil Rights Activist

After the brutal lynching death of her son, Emmett Till, Mamie Till Mobley became determined that what happened to her child would not happen to another person of color.  The photograph of graphic images of Emmett’s mutilated corpse became ingrained in the minds of the nation and the world.  She became an outspoken advocate in the fight for civil rights and continued to seek justice for her son years after his death.
