“America is still killing Emmett Till, but often by means less direct than bludgeons and bullets. The most successful killers of African American youth are poverty, resegregated and neglected public schools, gang violence, and lack of economic opportunities.”

-- From “The Blood of Emmett Till,” by Timothy B. Tyson, due late January.
