Historian Timothy Tyson Reveals Why He Sat On Emmett Till Confession



Jacque Reid goes Inside Her Story with Timothy Tyson, the author of The Blood Of Emmett Till to talk about the confession that led to the death of a young Emmett.

“It seems to me that she was in poor health. She hadn’t said a word since 1955. She kind of muttered, “well everyone is dead anyway.” She seemed like she did want to get it off her chest. It’s been a hard book to write. It’s an important American story and I wanted to get the truth as best I could.”
