Oprah Says Trayvon and Emmett Till are the Same In Her Mind

In an interview with The Grio about her new movie , Winfrey compares ’s murder to ’s. “It’s so easy during this time… paralleled Emmett Till, let me just tell ya. In my mind. Same thing. You can get stuck in that and not allow yourself to move forward and see how far we’ve come,” she said. “Look at the butler’s life. Look at that opening scene, the hanging… and then the end. We need to give ourselves a round of applause. In this country, with all of its injustices, look at what we’ve been able to do in the span of one man’s lifetime.”
