For those who may be unaware, Emmett Till was beaten, lynched and was only 14 years old. It’s been 64 years since this gruesome tragedy happened and we are anxious to hear more details. The series was originally set to air on HBO, but it was shelved numerous times over the past four years, so ABC decided to pick up the project as a part of their Women of the Movement anthology series.

The new generation of docuseries has brought a huge amount of attention on unresolved racial issues. We are looking forward to watching and witnessing greatness once again.
