The now legendary story of Emmett Till is believed by many to be the spark that ignited the modern civil rights movement and remains one of the most pivotal incidents in a monumental era.

Till was a 14-year-old Chicago resident who was brutally tortured and murdered for allegedly flirting with a white woman while visiting family in Money, Mississippi. Ifa Bayeza’s provocative piece of theater — part history, part ghost story — is a jazz integration of past and present, the living and dead, of factual accounts and creative interpolation.

Directed by Yolanda Franklin & Claudio Raygoza.
