BHM–Mamie Till-Mobley & Emmett Till

There is an author who kept a secret that Emmett Till’s accuser lied—not a big surprise. Supposedly the liar sought the author out to confess this secret. The author concern for the truth waits eight or ten years before publishing the secret in his book with an incendiary title, one that provokes Black folk hopefully to purchase it. It appears, Till is being assaulted again by an author who profits from the passions of Black folk. Further, the author seems to have spent enough time defending why the liar will not be prosecuted. Does this book bring any earth shattering news to the Till case? Does the Till family profit in any way from this publication? The final question, ask yourselves who really gains from this book?
