This photograph portrays two graduate students in a course I teach who were learning about Emmett Till, the young African American boy who was murdered by a group of white men in Mississippi in the mid 1950s. The murderers, two of whom later admitted killing Emmett, were found not guilty by a jury of their peers.

Students in my course converse with paint (no talking) during and after seeing a film about the murder.

I include this photograph in the heroic theme, as I think it is often most heroic to confront and challenge our own beliefs.
