In 1955, Emmett and his cousin, both from Chicago, went to visit family in Mississippi…according to several versions, Emmett whistled at a white woman and others say he grabbed her hand and asked for a date; others say all he did was say “Bye, baby” as he left the store. Myths, lies and misinformation abound. This play explores the impact of the brutal murder of Emmett Till and the powerful ripples of change that transformed America but also introduces a young boy whose vibrant personality, and charismatic disposition always left a wrinkle in the forehead and smile on your face and that is what will
be forever missed.
