Statue dedicated to Emmit Till unveiled in Mississippi

The Mississippi community of Greenwood erected a towering statue Friday in honor of Emmett Till, the 14-year-old Black boy whose murder sparked much of the 20th century civil rights movement.

The memorial statue stands at 9-feet tall -- a bronze figure reminiscent of Till's infamous portrait with a white button-down shirt, slacks and his left hand tipping his hat with a slight grin on his face.
