Amberly R. Carter, M. Ed
Amberly is an author, speaker and entrepreneur. She is the cousin of Emmett Till, 14 year old Chicago boy who was kidnapped and murdered in 1955 for allegedly whistling at a White woman in Money, MS. Till’s killers were acquitted by an all-White jury after 67 minutes of deliberation but later confessed to the crime for $4,000 to Look Magazine. Emmett Till’s murder and his mother, Mamie Till Mobley’s decision to hold an open casket funeral sparked the Civil Rights Movement. It was the sight of his brutalized body on the cover of Jet Magazine that pushed many who had been content to stay on the sidelines directly into the fight for justice.
