Our feature film will highlight the triumphs and progress being made within the civil rights movement. 1955 identified a shift from the complacency of injustice with the murder of Emmett Louis Till. Our story features the Mayor of Glendora as he narrates the injustice of the Till's death and illustrates new details of this case he has learned from a family member close to the events of this time period; that person was his father.
This story is not just an illustration of the events of 1955 but also a story of reconciliation as the Mayor pursues the Bryant family in hopes of bridging peace. Significant events of the Emmett Till case play as the backdrop for this docu-drama. In this film we will profile celebrities and varying thought leaders that have ties to Mississippi from all walks of race and showcase the impact the Emmett Till case has had on their lives and world view. It is our hope that this film begins a greater dialogue on how to expand the value of humanity and educate us all on our differences and how they were designed for our benefit and not our divide.
