The Blood of Emmett Till Overview

The Blood of Emmett Till is an academic, non-fiction book that chronicles the brief life and tragic death of Emmett Till, the fourteen-year-old black boy whose murder in Mississippi in 1955 galvanized the Civil Rights Movement. Although a critical reading of the events surrounding the murder and trial, the book presents a clear account of Emmett’s lynching and its subsequent political effects. The Blood of Emmett Till also contributes new scholarship to the debate, since it uses material heretofore unavailable to historians who have written about the case.
