Limited series focusing on Mamie Till Mobley, who spent her entire life seeking justice for her son Emmett Till after being brutally murdered in the Jim Crow South.
Mamie Till Mobley, a young mother living a simple life in Chicago, begrudgingly lets her adventurous 14-year-old son, Emmett, go on vacation with his great uncle and cousins to Mississippi. Days after his arrival, tragedy strikes and Mamie is faced with a mother's worst nightmare when her son goes missing.
After receiving the call that her son was kidnapped by white men in Mississippi, Mamie rallies her community in Chicago to bring Emmett home. As a result, Mamie is thrust into the spotlight while facing unimaginable tragedy.
After her son's body is recovered in Mississippi, Mamie insists on having a public wake with an open casket to ensure that he did not die in vain. The case becomes national news, which puts pressure on Mississippi officials to do the unthinkable—go to trial.
A historic trial begins, and on the eve of her testimony, Mamie must face the three people responsible for her son's murder, while also facing some ugly truths in the Jim Crow South.
The two mothers at the center of the Emmett Till murder, Carolyn Bryant and Mamie Till-Mobley, testify about his character in front of a packed courtroom.
After the verdict is reached and the story becomes international news, a movement begins – and Mamie Till-Mobley fights to defend Emmett's legacy.
