Emmett Till Tribute / by J. Ivy

Today I had the esteem honor of paying homage to #EmmettTill at his 60 yr commemoration ceremony at Burr Oak by performing with @TarreyTorae. It's sad that we're still dealing with the evils that haunt the good of the world but it's so important that we keep fighting. My grandmother took my mother, aunts, and uncle to Emmett's open casket which was seen worldwide. At a young age she was taught and shown what we were up against. She raised me and my brothers with prayers that nothing like that would ever come of us but so many of our brothers and sisters have fallen to senseless hate and violence. We have to continue to lift up love. We have to continue to fight for justice.#BlackLivesMatter #BlackLivesHaveAlwaysMattered
