Watch: A Closer Look at "Till"
When I think back at the historical moments we learned about in school, the most impactful for me has to be the story of Emmett Till and his courageous mother. Over the years I've seen several documentaries and scripted films retelling the story but now there's a feature film that I truly feel does this moment in civil rights history justice.
