On This Day In Black History Nov 27 - Nov. 27, 1955: Rosa Parks Attends Meeting About Emmett Till (262 hits)



On Nov. 27, 1955 Rosa Parks attended a packed mass meeting at Dexter Avenue Baptist Church to hear Dr. T. R. M. Howard speak. Howard was the lead organizer in the Emmett Till case, the 14-year-old Chicago boy who had been tortured and murdered near Money, Mississippi.

This story is excerpted from the Rosa Parks biography website by Jeanne Theoharis. Read more: https://www.zinnedproject.org/news/tdih/ro...
