An Award-winning Author

In a time when discussions of race are once again coming to the fore, the event that launched the civil rights movement — the 1955 lynching of a fourteen-year-old black boy named Emmett Till — is now reexamined by an award-winning author with access to never-before-heard accounts from those involved as well as recently recovered court transcripts from the trial.


Customer Reviews

“A gripping account of the cultural milieu of a racist environment. Cinematically engaging, harrowing, and poignant . . .”

— Publishers Weekly (starred)

“This highly readable book is likely to remain the final account of the Till murder and trial and its impact in the United States and abroad. It will appeal to anyone interested in African American history and the judicial process.”
