Biography Discussion Group

The Biography Discussion Group will discuss The Blood of Emmett Till by Timothy Tyson (Simon & Schuster, $17.00). In 1955, white men in the Mississippi Delta lynched a fourteen-year-old from Chicago named Emmett Till. But what actually happened to Emmett Till--not the icon of injustice, but the flesh-and-blood boy? Part detective story, part political history, The Blood of Emmett draws on a wealth of new evidence, including a shocking admission of Till's innocence from the woman in whose name he was killed.
