The Blood Of Emmett Till
1A, Thursday, February 9, 2017 at 0am
Author Timothy B. Tyson's "The Blood of Emmett Till" begins with a confession that most knew but few had heard. "That part's not true," Carolyn Bryant tells Tyson in a rare interview. Bryant is referring to testimony she gave in her husband's trial for Till's murder, when she said the black teenager physically accosted her in 1955. Till's brutal murder turned the world's eye to racial violence in the segregated South, and sparked organizing and protests that strengthened the mission of the Civil Rights Movement. We'll talk with Tyson about his controversial interview with Till's accuser and how the case still impacts America today. (aurevoir)
