Description

Before the March on Washington, before Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat, before the Mothers of the Movement — there was Mamie Till-Mobley. Her son, Emmett, was only 14 years old when he was kidnapped, tortured and murdered. By sharing the haunting image of Emmett’s body, Mamie Till-Mobley sparked what would become the civil rights movement. Through first-person narratives from her family members — and her own words — Season 2 of Reclaimed explores who Mamie Till-Mobley was before the death of her son, and who she would ultimately become. Season 1 of this series, “Tulsa’s Buried Truth,” covered the search for mass graves beneath Tulsa, Oklahoma, and the fight for justice for the descendants of the Black Americans killed in the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre.
