Sign up for our newsletters! In August , a group of white men in Money, Mississippi, kidnapped a black teenager from Chicago who had come to the South to visit his aunt and uncle. While out with his friends, he made advances to an older, married white woman at a local store. Word got around about what this black boy had done. The woman's husband took revenge by kidnapping Emmett Till, torturing and brutally killing him.

The book details the history of Emmett Till , a teenaged African-American boy, who was abducted and murdered after offending a white woman at a grocery store. After reportedly making advances at a married, white woman at a store while with his friends, Till was abducted by white men and brutally murdered. After a brief trial, the men were acquitted. They later confessed to the crime with impunity because they could not be tried twice for the same crime. One of Taylor's essays mentioned the Till murder which interested Crowe. Crowe researched the Till case after he finished the Taylor book and interviewed Till's mother over the telephone for some of the information in the book.
