Program Description


Due to Good Friday, this month's First Friday Film is now a Second Friday Film!

This outstanding film portrays the true story of Mamie Till Mobley's relentless pursuit of justice for her 14-year-old son, Emmett Till, who was brutally lynched while visiting his cousins in Money, Mississippi in 1955. Her poignant journey of grief turned to action and led to the development of the civil rights movement, showing the universal power of a mother's ability to change the world.
