CHICAGO (CBS) —¬†Sixty-eight years after Emmett Till’s murder, his family gathered to lay flowers at his grave and at the grave of his mother, Mamie Till-Mobley.

Thursday marks 68 years since Till’s brutalized body was found in a Mississippi river after the Black boy from Chicago was lynched by an all-white mob.

The roses on the gravesite are a gift from the people of Mississippi. Last month, President Biden established a national monument to honor his memory.
