    1 thought on “The Blood of Emmett Till”

    1. The Blood of Emmett Till by Timothy B. Tyson is an audible book I got from the library and I am not sure I am glad or not. I knew the story but not the details. I wanted to know but didn't want to know. It was so horrific, I didn't know if I could stand to hear it, to know that people stood by and let murderers go free. Did I want to live it? I did want to know because the world is turning backwards in any progress that has been made. Those of us that want the world to live in peace have to spre [...]

    2. Black Lives DON'T Matter. This country has been going out of its way to prove that for centuries and continues till this very day. Black Lives have never mattered. Emmett Till may have been murdered over 60 years ago but in reality this country is still killing him today. In Letters from a Birmingham Jail Dr. King writes that his worst enemies are not members of The Klan but "white moderates" who claim to support the goals of the movement but deplores its methods of protest.Emmett Till became a [...]

    3. "We cannot transcend our past without confronting it.""How do you give a crash course in hatred to a boy who has only known love?" -- Mamie Till, mother of Emmett TillEmmett Till. The boy whose lynching galvanized a global movement. Right now, the media seems to be afire with one of the revelations of this book: that Carolyn Bryant has finally admitted that she lied and that Emmett Till never accosted her. Other than her admission, that's not exactly a surprise. So what is the story of Emmett Ti [...]

    4. Just shared this book with "my" high school seniors. To tell Emmett's story and to highlight his mother's courageous actions. This woman grabbed her grief and wielded it like a weapon. She made sure that every single soul the three television networks could reach saw the battered body of her boy. If she did not spark a revolution, she surely fanned the flames.

    5. 4.5 starsA painful, but important look at US history while asking ourselves "how much has really changed?"Before going into this book, I had familiarity with the basics of the Emmett Till case, his horrific murder, and the gross miscarriage of justice after his death. Tyson's work provides much more detail about Till's family, the murderers' families, the impact of Till's death on the civil rights movement, and the reactions of other countries to the Till case. Listening to the book on audio, th [...]

    6. There is no interview or what would constitute as an interview with Carolyn, the instigator of Emmett Till’s fate. Her autobiography or papers are sealed till 2038.In the end TBOET adds nothing new to this tragedy.**ARC/publisher/NetGalley Update: 21 January '17 This book is for you if you are between the ages of 18-25. This book is for you if you don’t know any better. This book is for you if you have never watched the 1990 14-part documentary “Eyes on the Prize”. This book is for you i [...]

    7. My first experience learning about Emmett Till was by reading the historical fiction book, Wolf Whistle, by Lewis Nordan. It's a wonderful read that exposed me to an event I never knew took place. Tyson's work is nonfiction and does an excellent job putting the facts into a very readable text. Nordan and Tyson's works are great companion pieces that I highly recommend.

    8. Meh. This definitely is not the definitive book about Emmett Till and I'm not sure it added anything to the story about him that we didn't already know. It appears all the hype and hullabaloo around the author getting accessory to murder Carolyn Bryant to talk was just that: hype to promote a pretty basic book.

    9. There are probably few people who have not heard of Emmett Till and his horrific murder in 1955. This book, The Blood of Emmett Till by Timothy B. Tyson, in my view, does not add a great deal to the knowledge that has been available for all of these years; but he DOES an excellent job of taking what is known about the murder of this 14 year-old boy and placing it in a broader national, international, political and social context.In August, 1955 14 year-old Emmett Till left his mother, Mamie Till [...]

    10. At a time when the “Black Lives Matter” movement continues to gain momentum it is interesting to contemplate what the turning point was for the Civil Rights Movement. In his new book THE BLOOD OF EMMETT TILL, Timothy B. Tyson argues that the lynching of Emmett Till on August 28, 1955, by two white men in rural Mississippi was the tipping point. It appears their actions were in part motivated by the 1954 Supreme Court’s Brown v. the Board of Education of Topeka, KA decision outlawing “sep [...]

    11. In 1955 an all-white male jury found the two white defendants not guilty of killing a black boy even though they had confessed to the crime. This is one of the worst incidents of “Southern Justice” in our nation’s history. The victim was a fourteen-year-old black boy from Chicago who was visiting a relative in Mississippi. The boy who had polio when younger was accused of provoking a white woman, Carolyn Bryant, with a wolf whistle and flirtation. Her husband, Roy Brant and her half -broth [...]

    12. The Blood of Emmett Till: When Will We Ever Learn?The Blood of Emmett Till by Timothy B. Tyson was chosen as a group read by members of On the Southern Literary Trail for November, 2017. Come join us.Full Review to Follow

    13. This is what happens when you do a lot of research about what was sold in the country stores but you still don't manage to add anything new to the conversation about a famous lynching. Read it if you don't know anything of the history of Emmett Till. The story is a tragedy and the fact that the instigator got to be an old lady, still lying, is infuriating to say the least. However, I found this book to be a boring rehash.

    14. When asked to think of a picture of a truly heroic action, many people will think of the lone Chinese protester facing off a row of tanks in Tiananmen Square. After finishing Timothy B. Tyson’s magnificent new book, I now see a different picture. As photographs go it isn’t much but the story behind it makes shivers run down my spine. The image is of Moses Wright, a lanky black sharecropper and great uncle of 14-year-old Emmett Till. In the photograph the 64-year old Wright, standing tall in [...]

    15. Learning about Emmett Till is important, without question, but the epilogue of this is what knocked me to my knees.a sample"America is still killing Emmett Till, and often for the same reasons that drove the violent segregationists of the 1950s and 1960s. Yes, some things have changed; the kind of violence that snatched Till’s life strikes only rarely. A white supremacist gunman slaughtering nine black churchgoers in a prayer meeting in Charleston, South Carolina, in 2014, however, reminds us [...]

    16. Rough, raw and real. It was a hard listen but necessary. There was more historical facts and events inlcuded than just the story of Emmett Till, which I appreciated. It's hard to imagine that these things were occurring in the 50s, I mean the 50s weren't that long ago! I wasn't alive but my mother was and she was almost the same age as Emmett Till. I can't imagine growing up in such a racially tense, segregated and unequal time. We still deal with racism but of course it's more concealed and we [...]

    17. "To be a Negro in this country and to be relatively conscious is to be in a rage almost all the time" - James BaldwinThis quote perfectly encapsulates my existence at the moment. When I think of all the grave injustices that have been done to black people it makes me physically ill. I had to read this book in chunks because it's too much (emotionally) to digest in a couple sittings. It made me angry, sad and tearful.I've known about Emmett Till for many years but just recently have I been trying [...]

    18. "After all, how do you give a crash course in hatred to a boy who has only known love?" -Mamie Bradley"Emmet Till's death was an extreme example of the logic of America's national racial caste system. To look beneath the surface of these facts is to ask ourselves what our relationship is today to the legacies of that caste system-legacies that still end the lives of young African Americans for no reason other than the color of their American skin and the content of our national character Ask you [...]

    19. Fourteen-year-old Emmett Till was tortured and murdered in 1955 by Roy Bryant and J. M. Milam of Money, Mississippi for supposedly violating Jim Crow laws in front of Bryant's wife, Carolyn. The young black boy's body was discovered three days later in the Tallahatchie River lashed to a cotton-gin with barbed wire. His body was returned to his mother, Mamie Till Bradley, in Chicago who held an open casket which brought attention to the persecution of black Americans in the South to the world's a [...]

    20. This book should not be purchased until the proceeds are to be forwarded to the family of Emmett Till or to a charity in his name. The only people who should be profiting off of this story is Emmitt Till. Not the woman who caused his death or the author and publishing company exploiting it. This is information that should be freely publicized to exonerate Emmitt Till and inform the public. That awful woman that caused a childs torture and death should be put on trial for committing purgury and b [...]

    21. Great, needed book. The hook, which has been emphasized in almost every media account, is that Tyson, one of the two or three most important historians of race working today, interviewed the "woman in the case," who admits that she made up and embellished most of the detail that contributed to Till's lynching. The fact is that anyone even vaguely conversant with the racial situation in Mississippi pretty much knew that without the confession. The real importance of the confession is that it will [...]

    22. Largely well-written and researched. Entering this book with next to no prior knowledge about Emmett Till, I found it very informative. I also liked that the book gave a very detailed account of the conditions and atmosphere of race relations in Mississippi, Chicago and other parts of the US before, during and after Emmett Till's senseless murder and the subsequent shameful verdict. However, I didn't like that large parts of the narrative consisted of direct quotations extracted from numerous ot [...]

    23. I’m going to struggle with this review a bit because 85% percent of the book is extremely well written and a fascinating narrative about one of the more heinous incidents in American history. In 1955, 14 year old Emmett Till left his mother in Chicago for the summer to spend time with his uncle on the Mississippi Delta. One day Emmett wandered into a store where a young Carolyn Bryant, a white woman, was behind the counter. What happened after that is unclear and largely depends on whose story [...]

    24. A meticulously-researched book about the kidnapping and lynching of 14-year old, Chicagoan Emmett Till, while visiting his family in Mississippi in 1955. Sadly, the book was focused more on the consequences than the events, since the only living person who knows what actually happened (Carolyn Brant) won't say or doesn't remember. Only a few characters were developed, making the book largely uninteresting: mother, uncle, and the local Sheriff. I fear that the "us versus them" racist mentality of [...]

    25. just finished this and I feel shaken by the horrific brutality. Also, moved by the courage of many, including Till's mother. The courtroom drama was exciting to read, it was refreshing to learn details about young Emmett's personality, but that last chapter was one of the most difficult things I've ever read. Important story to tell, really understanding and taking responsibility for our history is the only thing that may save us.

    26. Despite a reference to Trayvon Martin, this book seems like it was written over a decade ago. It might have seemed radical and revelatory to some (maybe even me) if it had come out years ago. But I read this book immediately after reading Dr. Ibram X. Kendi’s National Book Award-winning Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America. In The Blood of Emmett Till, Tyson quotes Ta-Nehisi Coates. But Tyson seems to be in a different century from Kendi and Coates.Like [...]

    27. A must read. Any review of mine could never do this book justice, so here is a quote from the book itself:We are still killing black youth because we have not yet killed white supremacy. As a political program white supremacy avers that white people have a right to rule. That is obviously morally unacceptable, and few of its devotees will speak its name. But that enfeebled faith is not nearly so insidious and lethal as its robust, covert and often unconscious cousin: the assumption that God has [...]

    28. I read Devil in the Grove by Gilbert King last year (2016), for which he won the General Non-Fiction Pulitzer in 2013. It covers the case of the four black men in Florida who were wrongfully accused of rape in 1948 and the subsequent trial where they were represented by Thurgood Marshall. It is one of my favorite books in recent years, and I have been looking for something similar to read since. So when I saw The Blood of Emmett Till by Timothy B. Tyson on a list of best books of 2017, I decided [...]

    29. Here's a thoroughly researched, vital and horrifying history of the killing of Emmett Till, providing both an intimate, immediate portrait of the boy's life, death, funeral, and the subsequent trial of his murderers as well as a thoughtful overview of the racial, social, sexual, and political climate (locally and nationally), in which it all went down. Timothy Tyson opens things with a bombshell: Carolyn Bryant, whose deflowered "honor" was the motivation for the murder admits to the author that [...]
