This extraordinary New York Times bestseller reexamines a pivotal event of the civil rights movement—the 1955 lynching of Emmett Till—“and demands that we do the one vital thing we aren’t often enough asked to do with history: learn from it” (The Atlantic).

In 1955, white men in the Mississippi Delta lynched a fourteen-year-old from Chicago named Emmett Till. His murder was part of a wave of white terrorism in the wake of the 1954 Supreme Court decision that declared public school segregation unconstitutional. Only weeks later, Rosa Parks thought about young Emmett as she refused to move to the back of a city bus in Montgomery, Alabama. Five years later, Black students who called themselves “the Emmett Till generation” launched sit-in campaigns that turned the struggle for civil rights into a mass movement. Till’s lynching became the most notorious hate crime in American history.

But what actually happened to Emmett Till—not the icon of injustice, but the flesh-and-blood boy? Part detective story, part political history, The Blood of Emmett Till “unfolds like a movie” (The Atlanta Journal-Constitution), drawing on a wealth of new evidence, including a shocking admission of Till’s innocence from the woman in whose name he was killed. “Jolting and powerful” (The Washington Post), the book “provides fresh insight into the way race has informed and deformed our democratic institutions” (Diane McWhorter, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Carry Me Home) and “calls us to the cause of justice today” (Rev. Dr. William J. Barber, II, president of the North Carolina NAACP).

Citizens' councils were obsessed with maintaining white supremacy in the face of the federal government's decrees, and for them, as Tyson puts it, "The unsullied Southern white woman became the most important symbol of white male superiority." Emmett's death was, for his murderers, about keeping African-Americans in their place, and fearmongers used the "the old song of the Bruised Southern Lily and the Black Beast Rapist" to whip whites into hysterical furorHe said, "Fear and anger are the essential ingredients of inequality and injustice." Tim Tyson's retelling of the narrative of the murder of Emmett Till lays bare the fear and anger of not only the white men who brutally beat and killed the boy, but also of a society built on the narrative of white supremacy that condoned the murder and those of many, many othersDrHe recognized the potential in taking advantage of undocumented workersAfter the trial was over the defense lawyer was paid $1000.00 and $3ooo.00 was paid to Roy Bryant and his brother in law Miliam for their story which they knew they could not be brought to trialHer memory, you see, appears to be quite faultyTysons book should be read in the context of history, but also as a vehicle to contemporary understandingHer brave decision to hold an open-casket funeral for her battered son touched off news stories across the globeThe bookish pop culture blog for bibliophiles Get relationship help, parenting advice, healthy recipes, and tips for living a happy life from our author expertsIn September 2004 FBI agents located a faded copy of a copy of a copy in a private home in Biloxi, Mississippi 48a4f088c3
