Emmett Till’s cousin Deborah Watts responds to a shocking revelation. Carolyn Bryant, according to a historian/author, now claims that Till did not do to her what she’d claimed in 1955. She was 21 years old and white and said that Till had made sexual advances toward her. A few days later, the 14 year old African American Till was kidnapped and murdered. Deborah Watts, Till’s cousin, is co-founder of the Emmett Till Legacy Foundation.
