Joe Biden on Tuesday signed the Emmett Till Antilynching Act, making lynching a federal hate crime.
“The bill is named after Till, a 14-year-old Black teenager from Chicago who was abducted, tortured and shot in the head in 1955 after a white woman, Carolyn Bryant Donham, said he whistled at her and touched her in a Mississippi store.” NBC News reported.
Biden delivered remarks after signing the Emmett Till Antilynching Act.
“No federal law, no federal law, expressly prohibited lynching—none—until today,” Biden said.
