Abstract: »In the summer of 1955, Emmett Till, was murdered after reportedly flirting with a white woman. In the winter of 2012, Trayvon Martin was murdered after being labeled a “punk” by a vigilante neighborhood watchman. Many, including Martin’s mother, have drawn comparisons between the deaths of Emmett Till and Martin. For Black males today, their deaths reveal one important fact: Black masculinity is still often perceived as threatening and dangerous in the United States.« (Source: SpringerLink)
