The Face of Emmett Till
A drama by Maimee Till-Mobley and David Barr III
A true-to-life dramatization of the death of 14-year-old Emmett Till, a Chicago teenager who, while visiting relatives in Money, Miss., in August 1955, was kidnapped, tortured and murdered by two white men who claimed they wanted to teach him a lesson for allegedly whistling at a local white woman. This tragedy has been credited with sparking the modern Civil Rights Movement.
