Chilling & disturbing account...
22 June 2003 | by (Evansville, Indiana USA) – See all my reviews

The Murder of Emmett Till (2003) 1st watched 6/22/2003 - 8 out of 10(Dir-Stanley Nelson): Chilling & disturbing account of the murder of a 14 year old black boy visiting Mississippi from Chicago. This is a straight-forward no nonsense account that just tells the story the way it happened according to the killers themselves(because of the account they sold to a magazine) and the victims(the entire black race). It's amazing that this story is just now turned into a documentary for the whole world to see when it's obvious that this had a major impact on black society and their outrage that started the civil rights movement. The more it's watched the more disturbing it is which is why I consider this a well done documentary.
