The Untold Story of Emmett Louis Till

Unknown - 2005

"The film that helped reopen one of history's most notorious cold case civil rights murders is the result of the director's 10-year journey to uncover the truth. In August, 1955, Mamie Till-Mobley of Chicago sent her only child, Emmett Louis Till, to visit relatives in the Mississippi Delta. Little did she know that only 8 days later, Emmett would be abducted from his Great-Uncle's home, brutally beaten and murdered for one of the oldest Southern taboos : whistling at a white woman in public. This groundbreaking film shows unprecedented accounts by first-hand witnesses, many speaking out for the first time, and the discovery of potentially guility parties still living and liable for prosecution."--Container.
