We all know Emmett Till for the gruesome, unjust and animalistic murder that took him away from his mother, family, and friends in 1955. However, on July 25th, 1941 Till entered the world and had he not been snatched away, he would have celebrated his 78th birthday today.
We thought it was only right to celebrate Till’s short but impactful life on his birthday and honor him as the catalyst of the Civil Rights Movement.
If you’re looking for a way to celebrate as well, look no further than these t-shirts that’ll get the message across loud and clear — because we’ll never forget and we see how the ignorance that took him continues to prevail and put our communities in danger.
Happy birthday, Emmett! Continue to rest well, young king.
