Watts' aunt, Mamie Till-Mobley, famously made the decision to hold an open-casket funeral for her son, showcasing the brutal violence of white supremacy to the rest of the world. The injustice of Till's death — two white men were acquitted of his murder — became a powerful testimony for the Civil Rights Movement.
