65 years ago on August 28, 1955, Emmett Till was lynched in Mississippi after a woman falsely accused him of lewd behavior. Months after his death, the killers were acquitted and in 2017, the woman recanted her story. August 28, 2020, "The Commitment March" was held on the 57th anniversary of the historical March on Washington, where Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his "I Have a Dream" speech.

Till's mother had an open casket for his funeral to show the world what was done to her son. His death sparked national outrage as did the recent death of George Floyd. Floyd's death like Till's became a catalyst for the civil rights movement and we believe TODAY "real change is coming". We are tired of Brown and Black People Being Killed, we are tired of the police unjustifiably killing our black men and women.
We are tired of being judged by the color of our skin rather than the content of our character. Our individual successes cease to have meaning when we realize that we as a people DO NOT MATTER! Black Lives Matter!
When one of us is killed for little or no reason, the police should be held accountable and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. To do anything less, is stating that our lives indeed don't matter...
No Justice, No Peace!
