Performed and created by award winning actor and playwright Mike Wiley.
“I’d like my work to not only enlighten minds but to inspire hearts.”- Mike Wiley
In 1955, a 14-year-old black Chicago youth traveled to the Mississippi Delta with country kinfolk and southern cooking on his mind. He walked off the train and into a world he could never understand — a world of thick color lines, of hard-held class systems and unspeakable taboos. Young Emmett crossed that line and stepped into his gruesome fate by whistling at a white woman. Through conversations with a Look magazine journalist, Emmett’s mother and others caught up in the events that led to Till’s devastating fate, this riveting play chronicles the murder, trial and unbelievable confessions of the men accused of Till’s murder.
