"It is impossible not to be stirred with sadness and outrage," NY Times
"If you don't believe film can change the world, you haven't seen this one."

This film, which helped reopen one of history's most
notorious cold case civil rights murders, is the result
of the director's 10 year journey to uncover the
truth. Many consider this case to be the major
catalyst for the American Civil Rights Movement that
changed the course of history.

In August 1955, Mamie Till-Mobley of Chicago sent her only child, 14 year-old Emmett, to visit relatives in
the Mississippi Delta. Eight days later he was brutally beaten and murdered for allegedly whistling at a white woman.

This groundbreaking film shows unprecedented accounts by first-hand witnesses, many speaking out for first time.
Discussion with Rosemary Patton follows the 70 minute screening.
