Bayeza's play is told through contemporary prose with the infusion of jazz. A month after his fourteenth birthday, this confident youth from Chicago, a boy on the threshold of manhood, embarks on a summer trip to Mississippi. His pursuit of happiness and liberty are pierced with the poignancy of life. The 1955 lynching of Emmett Till fell on the cusp of a saga that changed the course of the nation.
The cast of Emmett Till will feature Kendrick "Kay" Brown, Rachel H. Dickinson, Broderick Jones, Joseph "Joe P" Palmore and Lee Waddell.
