"Itís Mississippi in the summer of 1955, and Rose Lee Carter canít wait to move north. But for now, sheís living with her sharecropper grandparents on a white manís cotton plantation.Library: Goodman South Madison Library
Then, one town over, an African American boy, Emmett Till, is killed for allegedly whistling at a white woman. When Tillís murderers are unjustly acquitted, Rose realizes that the South needs a change . . . and that she should be part of the movement.
Linda Jacksonís moving debut seamlessly blends a fictional portrait of an African American family and factual events from a famous trial that provoked change in race relations in the United States."
