Rep. Bobby Rush stands on the U.S. House floor next to a photograph of Mamie Till and her future husband, Gene Mobley, as she views her son Emmett's brutalized body. Rush used the image to highlight the impact of racial terrorism and make the case for the Emmett Till Anti-Lynching Act, which he sponsored.  (Image is a still from C-SPAN video.)
