The event that launched the civil rights movement- the 1955 lynching of young Emmett Till- now reexamined by an award-winning author with access to never-before-heard accounts from those involved as well as recently recovered court transcripts from the trial. In 1955, a fourteen-year-old black boy named Emmett Till, who had come down from Chicago to visit relatives in Mississippi, was murdered by a group of white men. He had gone into a small country store a few days earlier and made flirtatious remarks to a white woman, twenty-one-year-old Carolyn Bryant; Bryant's husband and brother-in-law were two of Till's attackers. They were never convicted, but Till's lynching became one of the most notorious hate crimes in American history. It set off a wave of protests across the country, helped the NAACP gain thousands of members, and inspired famous activists like Rosa Parks to stand up and fight for equal rights for the first time. Part detective story, part political history, Timothy Tyson's The Blood of Emmett Till revises the history of the Till case, not only changing the specifics that we thought we knew, but showing how the murder ignited the modern civil rights movement. Tyson uses a wide range of new sources, including the only interview ever given by Carolyn Bryant; the transcript of the murder trial, missing since 1955 and only recovered in 2005; and a recent FBI report on the case. In a time where discussions of race are once again coming to the fore, The Blood of Emmett Till redefines a crucial moment in civil rights history. -- Publisher description.… (lisätietoja)

The contribution Mrs. Till made to the Civil Rights Movement by her act of witness cannot be overlooked and the book itself is a true contribution, in my opinion, to education around racial justice issues.

Heartbreaking, but brilliant, it walks through the events and context surrounding the murder of Emmett Till and the influence it had on history. The ties linking it to today were a bit forced, at least as it came across in the audio, but, still, it's an important book. ( )

More than the story of one 14-year-old African-American boy who lost his life for saying a few unwelcome words to a white woman, this exhaustively researched tale takes us from Emmitt Till to the civil rights movement and up to today. Yet with such a wide breadth of coverage it is also very personal.

Emmett Till was a 14-year-old from Chicago who was excited about staying with his uncle in Mississippi for the summer. He wasn't there long, though, before he made the mistake that led to his death. In a little family-owned store he made some remark to the young woman at the counter and she was insulted by it. We can't say for certain what he said, as she later admitted that much of what she testified to in court was not true. Much later, though.

Carolyn Bryant waited until she was advanced in age before speaking publicly about what happened and what she had told others. Even then, as far as she could go was to say that what happened to Emmett should not have happened.

Carolyn, the young woman, told her family what the young black boy had said to her and suggested that he had touched her as well. Two men then took it upon themselves to find the boy and teach him some manners. They took it much farther than that, beating him with such viciousness that his body, when found, was not easy to identify.

And here is where the story really begins. For in Mississippi in the early 1950s it was still common for African-Americans to be "lynched" for supposed crimes, many of them not crimes at all. "Lynched" in this case is a generic term for a killing done in vengeance, usually an African-American killed by a European-American.

It was common but Till's mother was determined that it not be swept under any rugs, not ever forgotten. She insisted that her boy's body be brought back to Chicago rather than buried in Mississippi, and she insisted on an open-casket at the funeral. She went further, notifying people she knew would spread the word, and spread the word they did. Without her actions we would likely never have heard of Emmett Tlll.

Thus he takes his place among the early cases that spurred the civil rights movement. Tyson takes us through many of the others and up to today, placing them all in context. It is more than a simple history, though. It is emotionally charged and inspiring. A must-read. ( )

I was familiar with only the bare outline of the murder of Emmett Till before reading this book, but I leapt to read it when I saw it was by Tim Tyson, author of the astounding "Blood Done Sign My Name," about a widely witnessed murder of a black man by a white man in 1970s North Carolina. This newest book is not as strong as that one. The strong writing and novelistic recreation of the way Tyson tells history are here; the complications of too easy narratives that this true historian won't ignore are here; but despite the inclusion of the widely publicized interview Tyson had with Carolyn Bryant ("victim" of Till's possible whistle, silent in public from the 1954 trial to this publication), there is not much new here in terms of the facts of Till's lynching. And when the narrative ends, the implication piece gets a bit flowery in its prose, even when the content remains quite strong. (That alone is why four stars instead of five.) ( )

Really well done book. I was not super informed of the Emmett Till case. And it is fascinating - and frightening. Only 1955? yikes. Author tackles a lot of angles about how the murder changed America and all the fallout from it. Enjoyed his analysis of the consequences of the event as well. Recommend to all. ( )
