Unquiet Grave

June 2, 2005 - They exhumed the body of Emmett Till yesterday. The all-white jury that acquitted his killers reportedly did so in part because they couldn't be certain the body fished out of the Mississippi was really Till.

April 4, 2005 - On April 4, 1968, a shot rang through a throng of striking garbage workers in Memphis, Tennessee. Who fired the gun is still being debated, but the result is not: Martin Luther King, Jr., was killed at the young age of 39 on the balcony of the Lorraine Motel.
