Emmett Till....They dragged him from his great-uncle’s house and secreted him away to a barn, where they beat him and gouged out one of his eyes. Then they shot him through the head and disposed of his body in the Tallahatchie River...His grossly disfigured body was discovered in the river three days later....Till’s mother insisted on having a public funeral with an open casket so the world could see how her son had been brutalized.

I don't know why I like this picture so much, I glanced at it and seemed to fall in love. He looks so strong and noble. Like once he finds a master and friend he will stay with him till death...(:
