Personal Quote:

It scared us half to death. We were almost in shock. We couldn't get out of there fast enough, because we had never heard of anything like that before. A black boy whistling at a white woman? In Mississippi? No. [on his reaction to his cousin Emmett whistling at a white woman in a grocery store]


After Till's killers were acquitted at trial, Wright's father moved the family to Chicago. See more »
