Civil Rights documentary, "The Murder of Emmett Till", by Stanley Nelson

Monday, February 10, 2014 12:15 PM

Campbell Dome

The 14-year old Emmett Till was brutally lynched in Money, Mississippi, in 1955 while on a visit from Chicago. This film shows how his mother would not let the case be covered up and turned an early, national spotlight on conditions there. The memory of his murder influenced a whole generation of 1960s young activists. The name “Emmett Till” meant the same to an earlier generation as the name “Trayvon Martin” means for ours.
