Event Description:
presented by Mike Wiley Productions

In 1955 a 14-year-old black Chicago youth traveled to the Mississippi Delta with country kinfolk and southern cooking on his mind. He walked off the train into a world he could never understand – a world of thick color lines, of hard-held class systems and unspeakable taboos. Young Emmett crossed that line and stepped into his gruesome fate by whistling at a white woman. Written and performed by Mike Wiley, this riveting one-actor play chronicles the murder, trial and unbelievable confession of the men accused of Till’s lynching.
