$27.00
ISBN: 9781476714844
Availability: Hard to Find - May no longer be available
Published: Simon & Schuster - January 31st, 2017

The lynching of 14-year-old Emmett Till is as raw today as it was in 1955. Tyson has written a gripping account of the murder, the trial, and the subsequent birth of the modern Civil Rights movement. It's a tragic story, but one that ultimately leaves us "reaching for our better angels, and moving toward higher ground." ~ Reviewed by Charles Bottomley
