S1 E30: Movement Time

January 25, 2017


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.

    How prophetic. Movement time came 3 1/2 years later after this podcast’s prediction. Movement time came with another Emmitt Till moment with George Floyd.

    I belong to a workgroup through my church that is examining how we become an anti-racist congregation. This series will help our planning group to learn more about how white privilege displays historically and what we need to do to introduce changes.

    I am looking forward to participating in the series.
