The book that I had read was getting away with murder. It was written by Christopher E Crowe It was a true story that happened in 1955 when the civil rights movement were just about to begin. It was a boy named Emmitt till he was only 14 years old when he was murdered .Two white individuals had killed him .A lot of Afraicain Americans were outragged because of this incident with the white men . I liked the book because it was very interesting to see what had happened to this young man . It was kind of disturbing because they beat the young man to death with no remorse for him just because of the little thing he did .I was surprised because the men got away with killing the young man. The white men threw his body in a river. I recommend reading it if books about history are your type of thing.
