Mamie Till is surrounded by family and photographers who snap her photo collapsing in grief at the sight of the casket. His body is taken to the A. A. Rayner & Sons Funeral Home.
The Jackson [Mississippi] Daily News decries the “brutal, senseless crime” but complains that the NAACP is working “to arouse hatred and fear” by calling Till’s murder a lynching.
In Belgium, the newspaper Le Drapeau Rouge (the Red Flag), publishes a brief article entitled: “Racism in the USA: A young black is lynched in Mississippi.”
