    Emmett Till's case has been reopened. His brutal death in 1955 put a spotlight on racial violence.
    The federal government is once again investigating the brutal slaying of Emmett Till, a black teenager whose 1955 lynching put a spotlight on racial violence and galvanized the U.S. civil rights movement. The Justice Department told Congress in a report submitted in March that it has reopened the investigation into Till's death "after receiving new information."

Thanks Urban Art Gallery for your work in the community!

    Part safe space, part beacon, West Philly's Urban Art Gallery 'bridges the gap between violence and peace'
    It was a Friday night in March when musician Christian "Sap" Tizon and his band were rehearsing in West Philadelphia's Urban Art Gallery. Then, over the music, they heard loud popping sounds. Through the large plate-glass windows, they saw flashes of light in the darkness. They knew it was gunfire.
