For six decades the Till story has continued to haunt the South as the lingering injustice of Till's murder and the aftermath altered many lives. Fifty years after the murder, renewed interest in the case led the Justice Department to open an investigation into identifying and possibly prosecuting accomplices of the two men originally tried. Between 2004 and 2005, the Federal Bureau of Investigation conducted the first real probe into the killing and turned up important information that had been lost for decades.
This book will stand as the definitive work on Emmett Till for years to come. In Emmett Till, Anderson corrects the historical record and presents this critical saga in its entirety.
The book is published by University Press of Mississippi.
