ANNOUNCEMENT – CASTING CALL: TILL WE’RE FREE

TILL WE’RE FREE is the story of a mother, Mamie Till, whose defiance while exposing the truth behind the murder of her 14-year-old-son, Emmett Till, helped spark the Civil Rights Movement.   Emmett was beaten and killed for whistling at a white woman in Mississippi in 1955.   The two accused men, Roy Bryant and his half-brother J.W. Milliam, were acquitted of the murder, but later confessed to a reporter to kidnapping and killing Emmett Till – but they didn’t tell the whole truth.
