about

Jazz saxophonist and composer Ernest Dawkins created this work to mark the anniversary of Emmett Till’s murder in 1955. Acclaimed poet Khari B. melds together spoken word from the imagined viewpoints of Emmett Till and his murderers. The emotions of his grieving mother, Mamie Till, are expressed through the singing of renowned jazz songstress Dee Alexander.
