About The Till Trilogy - The Ballad of Emmett Till
The now legendary story of Emmett “Bo” Till is believed by many to be the start of the modern civil rights movement of the 1950s and remains one of the most pivotal incidents in a monumental era. Experience the story in 3 parts.
Ifa Bayeza’s Edgar Award-winning drama recounts Emmett Till’s journey during the last two weeks of his life. The work is a contemporary revelation of Emmett’s youthful, boisterous, stuttering character, a recreation of the teenager’s journey from Chicago to Mississippi and his fateful encounter with Caroline Bryant, the young white woman whose accusation that Emmett whistled at and then threatened her, led to Emmett’s murder.
