Plot Summary: It has been over 40 years since the death of Emmett Louis Till, a fourteen-year-old black Chicago youth who was slain in Money, Mississippi in 1955.

Emmett Till who was visiting family in the Delta had the great misfortune of finding 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. Although Emmett’s horrific death has plagued society for many years, Emmett did not die in vain. The death of Emmett Till sparked, the black resistance of the South, better known to many as the American Civil Rights Movement.

Today, many have forgotten the young boy who was the sacrificial lamb of a movement, which gave opportunities to all walks of life. Soon, director Keith A. Beauchamp of Till Freedom Come Productions, LLC, will bring you a story that is soon not to be forgotten. A family’s agony for over 40 years will finally be told revealing the truth surrounding the Till case by the people who were there.
