Roger Ebert?s widow Chaz Ebert will bring Emmett Till?s story to the big screen in the film-adaptation of Death of Innocence: The Story of the Hate Crime That Changed America, a book penned by his mother Mamie Till-Mobley and journalist Christopher Benson.
Till was lynched in 1955 after allegedly whistling at a White woman. His death galvanized the Civil Rights movement.
“The full Emmett Till story needs to be told now and told well as a narrative for our times, given all that is happening on American streets today and Shatterglass Films are the people to tell it,” Ebert said.
