The white woman who accused Black teenager Emmett Till of making improper advances before he was lynched in Mississippi in 1955 has died in hospice care in Louisiana, a coroner’s report shows. Carolyn Bryant Donham was 88.
Klint Ludwig, a grandson of Andrew Lester, the white man who shot Black teen Ralph Yarl for ringing his bell in Kansas City, says he wasn't surprised by the shooting and that he believes his grandfather holds "racist tendencies."
16-year-old Ralph Yarl was shot twice -- once in the forehead and once in the forearm -- when he accidentally approached the wrong front door while picking up his younger brothers. Andrew Lester, 84, has been charged with assault.
