Seen today in San Francisco.
It looks like there is a series of at least three #blacklivesmatter posters, as seen in Oakland via twitter:
- Emmett Till: LYNCHING IS NOT OVER
- Trayvon Martin: TRAYVON SHOULD WALK FREE
- Oscar Grant: WE MUST MAKE MURDER IMPOSSIBLE
Emmett Louis Till (July 25, 1941 – August 28, 1955) was an African-American boy who was murdered in Mississippi at the age of 14 after reportedly flirting with a white woman. Two white men (the woman’s husband and his half-brother) gouged his eyes out, shot him through the head, tied a 70-lb cotton gin fan around his neck with barbed wire and dumped his weighted body in the Tallahatchie River. The two suspects were acquitted of murder, and once the trial was over, protected by double jeopardy, openly admitted in a magazine interview to committing the murder. Till’s murder is considered a pivotal moment in motivating the Civil Rights Movement. (more)
