Dr. Robert Mayer and 'In the Name of Emmett Till' | LV Arts Salon
In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Silagh White proudly hosts Dr. Robert Mayer as they discuss his new book, In the Name of Emmett Till: How the Children of the Mississippi Freedom Struggle Showed Us Tomorrow. The book follows the little-known stories of the young Mississippians who were galvanized into activism by the horrific murder of Emmett Till.
Silagh and Dr. Mayer reflect on this important history that inspired the civil rights movement and how it is taught in schools today.
