SIMEON BOOKER, EMMETT TILL, CLYDE KENNARD, LAMAR SMITH, MISSISSIPPI


Simeon Booker, who died in December 2017. 

In 1955, in Mississippi, 14 year old Emmett Till was tortured and murdered by a group of white men.

Emmett Till, a Black kid, was lynched after a white woman said she was offended by him in her family's grocery store.

Simeon Booker, a Black journalist, wanted to expose the truth.

At the Emmett Till murder trial, journalist Simeon Booker was segregated from the regular reporter pool and forced to work at a small card table in the back of the courtroom.


Two white men who were accused of murdering Emmett - and later admitted it in a Look Magazine interview - were acquitted in 1955 by an all-white, all-male jury, and so could not be retried.

The woman, who said she was offended by Emmett, was Carolyn Bryant Donham.

She now confesses that her allegations - that Emmett grabbed her and was menacing and sexually crude toward her - were false.

Woman Linked to 1955 Emmett Till Murder

Simeon Booker was a reporter for Jet and Ebony magazines. 

Booker covered the funeral of Emmett Till.

Booker stood beside Till's mother as she threw open the coffin and removed the rubber bag from her son's mutilated face.

Booker was often threatened and attacked by white fascists.

Emmett Till

1. Emmett Till was from Chicago.

In 1955, fourteen year old Emmett went to visit a small town in Mississippi.

He allegedly whistled at a woman outside a store.

A group of men later beat Emmett to a pulp, shot him dead and dumped him in a river.

The husband of the woman who had been allegedly whistled at, and his half brother, were arrested.

The evidence against them was 'pretty overwhelming'.

The jury found the two men not guilty.

In 1956, the two men admitted in an interview with Look magazine that they had killed Emmett.

Emmett was black and the jury was white.

Clyde Kennard

2. In 1955, Clyde Kennard, a former army sergeant, tried to enrol at Mississippi Southern College in Mississippi.

He was sent away.

University officials planted illicit alcohol and stolen chicken feed in his car and had him charged with theft.

He died in prison.

3. Lamar Smith was a 63-year-old black farmer and World War II veteran and organizer of black voter registration.

He was shot to death in broad daylight at close range on the lawn of the Lincoln County courthouse in Brookhaven, Mississippi.

Some reports say there were many white witnesses including the local sheriff who saw a white man covered with blood leaving the scene.

No witnesses would come forward and three men who had been arrested went free.

    1. Better still, publish you and expose your pathetically warped view. I'm assuming you support the rights of white establishment males to rape, murder and abuse children and minorities? Maybe next time you could show the strength of your convictions and put your name to your messages. But of course you would never do anything as courageous as that.

  2. white supremacy is truly ugly up close
    especially since hick rednecks are not
    exactly the upper crust, if you catch
    the drift...

    ugly truth is the Bible isn't about "Jews"...at all

    The Children of Israel in the Bible at Genesis 49 -
    Deuteronomy 33 are not "Jewish"...nor do the Tribes
    of the children of Israel have a copy of a Talmud

    the Proselytes to the Synagogue of Satan in Palestine
    are a manifestation of BAD FAITH...John 8:44.

    shouldn't the slave ship owners bear some liability
    for transporting the africans back to africa...Isaiah 13:14.

    or does ledgerdemain not apply to the money changers

    notwithstanding truth and justice

    Sincerely,

  3. I don't know what to say, it's hard to imagine such evil.

    A few years back there was an American guy from the South talking on the radio who was a policeman, or something, in the 60's and he became friendly with the black people and so the white people stopped taking to him. It really upset him.

  4. In 1960s Mississippi, with African-Americans awaiting implementation of the new Federal laws repealing Jim Crow discrimination, our dear Queen Elizabeth II made her own "killing" (so-to-speak) from Black labourers working in the Delta.

  6. Most slave ships were owned by Jews. Most slave plantations were owned by Jews. Most extremist and hate groups were founded by and/or led by Jews, even today. Yet somehow the blame only ever goes to "white men"......
