Event

'The Untold Story of Emmett Louis Till' followed by panel discussion with the director
Dir. Keith Beauchamp, 2005, 70 min.
Emmett Till who was visiting family in the Delta had the great misfortune of finding out what Southern Hospitality means when two white men, Roy Bryant and J. W. Milam decided to teach him a lesson for allegedly whistling at a white woman, Bryant's wife. Abducted, severely beaten, and finally thrown into the Tallahatchie River with a weight fastened around his neck with barbed wire, Emmett Till was murdered for one of the oldest forbidden taboos in America's history, addressing a white woman in public. The murderers were later arrested, but were acquitted in a court of law by an all white, all male jury. Emmett did not die in vain. The death of Emmett Till sparked the black resistance of the South, soon to become the American Civil Rights Movement. In this documentary directed by Keith Beauchamp, a family's agony is finally told revealing the truth surrounding the Till case by the people who were there.
                           
Post-screening panel discussion with director Keith Beauchamp and Herb Boyd, moderated by Claudia Williams.
