Interview with Rutha Mae Jackson and Willie Hill Jackson
QUESTION 18
INTERVIEWER:

WHY'S THAT?

Willie Hill Jackson:

Uh, well, it was pretty rough for a Negro to say anything about it in the beginning, you know. So, but the white people they don't even talk about it either. So, nobody says anything about the Emmett Till case. Every once in a while you know, you hear it in the, in the big news, you know, on TV or something like that. Someone might say something about the Emmett Till case, you know, talking. They, well, they mostly be talking about something else, and they'll bring that, you know, the word up. But around here, nobody says anything about it. White or either black.
