9781420875447: The Journey to Chatham: Why Emmett Till's Murder Changed America, a personal story

A story about America in its pre-civil rights struggle, and how the brutal murder of an innocent Chicago boy forced the country to face its own ugliness.The impact of Emmett Till's brutal murder is told from the perspective of his neighborhood friends and who he was before he became an unwilling symbol of the horror of racial hatred. His courageous mother, Mrs. Mamie (Till) Bradley, exhibited her strength and sense of justice when she refused to allow her son's casket to be closed for the funeral. The truth of what happened to her son was not only etched on his bloated and broken face but on the conscience of the country's psyche.

About the Author:

Growing up on the South side of Chicago in the 1950s was deliciously bitter. We lived in a safe world that was found to be brittle. The death of a childhood school mate skewed the lives for me and every American. I was a victim, as well as an unknowing perpetrator, as were we all. Everyone who ignored the brutality of the racism that ran rampant through the United States, was stained with the blame of tolerating such an abhorrent reality.My experiences as a civil rights activist during the 1960s leads me to continually examine, the truth of my life today and to what degree the ugliness of racism is still allowed to exist in our country. Having been recently ordained a Catholic Clergyman, as a U.S. Army veteran, and retired business executive, I am dedicated to the spiritual and economic growth and development of impoverished communities.
