Emmett Till Movie Had A Therapist On Set

Till director, Chinonye Chukwu, recently revealed the upcoming biographical movie had a therapist on set. Based on the real-life events of the infamous lynching of 14-year-old black child, Emmett Till, the film retells the tragic story through the perspective of Emmett's mother, Mamie Till. During the summer of 1955, Mamie sent Emmett to visit family members near Money, Mississippi. While at a local grocery store, Emmett encountered Carolyn Bryant, a 21-year-old white woman. Several days following the incident, Bryant's husband and her half-brother abducted Emmett in the middle of the night and brutally beat and tortured the child before killing him. Till aims to celebrate Emmett's life and chronicle Mamie's journey following the murder of her son, from grieving single mother to educator and civil rights leader.
