The Context of White Supremacy welcomes the return of Keith Beauchamp. Maker of the 2005 documentary The Untold Story of Emmett Louis Till, Beauchamp’s research into Till’s 1955 murder prompted the Department of Justice to re-open their investigation into the killing. Mr. Beauchamp worked with Till’s mother, Mamie Till Mobley, for nearly a decade. We’ll get Mr. Beauchamp’s thoughts on Timothy B. Tyson’s new book on this subject, The Blood of Emmett Till. Tyson’s feature talking point is his 2008 exclusive interview with Carolyn Bryant Donham, the White Woman who accused Till of sexually violating her. Ms. Donham admitted to Tyson that she lied. We’ll discuss the 2007 grand jury that refused to indict Ms. Donham, as well as Mr. Tyson’s decision to not inform Till’s family about Ms. Donham’s confession.
