Women Of The Movement

Women Of The Movement Review: Emmett Till, the 14-year-old Black boy brutally murdered in a racially motivated crime in the Jim Crow era U.S.A, is hardly obscure in his tragic story. This story remains irresistible to storytellers of all stripes despite the cruelty of his death and the judicial travesty that followed.‘Women of the Movement‘ is a new anthology series on ABC. The drama purports to focus on Till’s mother, Mamie Till-Mobley (Adrienne Warren), who devoted her life to seeking justice for her son, and it’s a worthwhile challenge. Despite how well-covered Till’s death has been, his mother’s story isn’t as well known. Despite Women of the Movement’s ambitious nature, it’s a missed opportunity as a story told without a singular, authoritative voice.

During the summer of 1955, Emmett Till was killed just days after he left Chicago to visit relatives in Mississippi. A white woman was allegedly flirting with him, his “crime”.His body was dumped into the Tallahatchie River after he was tortured and killed at night In the aftermath of the murder, the Civil Rights Movement was sparked.
