edited by Christopher Metress.
Charlottesville, VA: University of Virginia Press, 2002. This is an amazing collection of any document you could imagine relating to the Emmett Till case, from before the murder up until the current day.
"The Murder of Emmett Till". http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/amex/till/. A collection of resources from PBS connected to an American Experience episode centered on Emmett's murder. I haven't really looked into using these resources, but there are some great images and I am sure there is a lot of valuable information located here.
"The Untold Story of Emmett Louis Till: New Documentary Uncovers Evidence in 1955 Murder" http://www.democracynow.org/2005/6/15/the_untold_story_of_emmett_louis. This is an interview with the director of the documentary
The Untold Story of Emmett Louis Till
. Students can read it before or after viewing the documentary in order to understand the director's motivation and background.
The Untold Story of Emmett Louis Till.
Directed by Keith A. Beauchamp. 2004.Ventura, CA: Velocity, 2006. DVD. Perhaps the best thing about this documentary is that it includes extensive footage of Emmett's mother, Mamie Till Bradley, before her death. There are also interviews with many of the people who were there during Emmett's murder and trial. It goes deeper than the book and would make an excellent follow-up after students read Emmett's story.
