Remembering Emmett Till, Julie Lyons and Kira Baker- On the Bus, Spring 2016

The story of Emmett Till's brutal murder resonates through the years.  The civil rights pilgrims, students from UW, Bellevue College and Utah State University as well as adult community members from around the NW, walked through the Emmett Till Museum, established in tiny Glendora Mississippi through the efforts of the town's mayor, Johnny B. Thomas.   Back on the bus, Community member Julie Lyons and University of Washington Student Kira Baker were still processing the moment and how Till's murder affected America.
