Sixty-one years ago, on Sept. 23, 1955, a Tallahatchie County, Miss., jury acquitted Roy Bryant and J. W. Milam despite a pile of damning evidence that the two had abducted, beaten and then shot Emmett Till.

In their "Open Letter to the American People," released recently, a group called "Historians Against Trump" declared that "the lessons of history compel us to speak out against [Donald] Trump."

Reflecting on recent calls for stripping the name of Robert E. Lee, a slave owner who went to war in slavery's defense, from Washington & Lee University, historian Emory Thomas has noted that the school's other namesake, George Washington, was also a slaveholder-and that this raises the awkward possibility that one of the country's most distinguished liberal arts institutions might be known one day simply as "&."
It was the public relations coup of the year: A five-day East Coast tour, televised minute by minute to a vast global audience, in three identical black Fiat 500Ls flying the Vatican flag. If your product could use a blessing, who better to do it than a man who is supposedly infallible?
According to market-research firm J.D.Power, more than a quarter of the 16 million new-car purchases in the U.S. last year were made by that tech-savvy group known as millennials at honest-to-goodness dealerships. How could that be, in an age of painless online shopping, when you can buy everything from shoes to mortgages via keystrokes?
If you like letting your car do the driving, or if you enjoy being coddled and comfortable, the Alfa 4C Spider is not for you. High strung and demanding, it is the opposite of an autonomous car. Absent from the U.S.

Johnson signed the Voting Rights Act on Aug. 6 of 1965 that federal voting examiners speedily dispatched to Selma, Ala., proceeded in a single day to register 381 new black voters, more than had managed to register in Dallas County over the last 65 years.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
