The blood of Emmett Till
In 1955, white men in the Mississippi Delta lynched a visiting fourteen-year-old from Chicago named Emmett Till. His murder was part of a wave of white terrorism in the wake of the 1954 Supreme Court decision that declared public school segregation unconstitutional. The national coalition organized to protest the Till lynching became the foundation of the modern civil rights movement. But what actually happened to Emmett Till? Not the icon of injustice, but the flesh-and-blood boy? Tyson draws on a wealth of new evidence--including the only interview ever given by Carolyn Bryant, the white woman in whose name Till was killed--to present a half-detective story, half political history. --
