The Untold Story of Emmett Till presented by Sabira Cole Film Festival
Monday, July 13 from 7:00 to 8:30 pm
Money, Mississippi in the year 1955: Emmett Louis Till, a fourteen-year-old black Chicago youth was slain. In this documentary, a family’s agony is finally told revealing the truth surrounding the Till case by the people who were there. 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 death of Emmett Till sparked the black resistance of the South, soon to become the American Civil Rights Movement. After the screening, there will be a live discussion and Q&A with Herb Boyd and director Keith Beauchamp.
