Facts can be ignored by the powers that be and still ignite a movement. An interview with Tim Tyson, author of the new book, The Blood of Emmett Till. Tyson was the first historian or journalist to interview the former Carolyn Bryant, the woman in whose name Emmett Till was murdered in 1955.

    First learned of this book and Dr. Tyson on Book TV. Dr. Tyson is a very passionate historian and I admired the dedication he demonstrated during his reading.
