The Ballad of Emmett Till
Preview Tue. and Wed., Feb. 4-5, 7:30 pm; Feb. 6 — Mar. 2, various times
His brutal death was the spark that ignited one of the most important social justice movements in the world, but Emmett Till remains a stranger to most Americans. The Ballad of Emmett Till introduces you to the boy and celebrates his life through the eyes of those who loved him and knew him best. As his mother said, her son was “the sacrificial lamb of the Civil Rights Movement.” When he died, the world woke up.
