This book will appeal to those interested in American history, and the Civil Rights movement in particular. But Mrs. Till Mobley’s wit, wisdom, and spirituality will come through in this book, so in some ways this book may have as much appeal for readers of Taylor Branch as for the Delaney sisters. This is a major addition to the civil rights canon.
A memoir by the mother of Emmett Till—a black teenager whose murder was the hate crime that changed America. The trial was the first big media event of the Civil Rights movement and this is the definitive, heart-wrenching, first-person account of how “Mother Mobley” galvanized a nation and honored the memory of her son.
