The Face of Emmett Till is a true-to-life dramatization of the death of a 14-year-old black Chicagoan who, while visiting relatives in Mississippi in 1955, was kidnapped, tortured and murdered by two white men who claimed they wanted to teach him a lesson for (allegedly) whistling at a local white woman. The play chronicles this tragedy, its aftermath, Till’s mother’s heroic crusade for justice, and the beginnings of the Civil Rights Movement.
