The Ballad of Emmett Till - The original director and cast of our award-winning 2010 LA Premiere of THE BALLAD OF EMMETT TILL by Ifa Bayeza will reunite for a finely produced, live-streamed reading of the play on the 65th anniversary of Till's murder. In August, 1955, 14-year-old Emmett Till was visiting relatives in Money, Mississippi when he was accused of whistling at Carolyn Bryant, a white woman who was a cashier at a grocery store. Four days later, Bryant's husband Roy and his half-brother J.W. Milam kidnapped Till, beat him and shot him in the head. The men were tried for murder, but an all-white, male jury acquitted them. Till's murder and open casket funeral galvanized the emerging Civil Rights movement. Bryant recanted her story in 2017, admitting that the court testimony she gave more than six decades prior was false and stating "Nothing that boy did could ever justify what happened to him." click here
