Storyboard Text

  • Anderson Cooper 360
  • For Years, the story of Emmett Till had gravitated through history as the moment when America saw the brutality of Segregation in the United States.
  • Well, just recently, Mrs. Carolyn Bryant Donham revealed she had exaggerated when describing her experience with Till. This is what might've gotten the poor boy killed.
  • Anderson Cooper 360
  • In order to understand Till's story, we need to start from the beginning. He was an african american 14 year old boy living with his mother in a slightly segregated Chicago in the 1950's. It was very different from where he was going, Money, Missouri.
  • Bye Emmett! Remember that things are different in Money. Look down to white woman and remember to say yes sir and no sir!
  • Till was an average 14 year old boy from a 1950's Chicago. He left for the summer, going to Missouri to spend time with family. His mother warned him that things were different there, but he didn't seem to listen.
  • Bye Mom!
  • When Till arrived, he was immediately looked down upon. Missouri, one of the most segregated states in the world, had a small town called Money, population 55. He was there to spend the duration of the summer with his uncle and cousins.
  • Get outta' here ya disgustin' African American. Money is no place for Blacks!
  • No Thank You, Sir!
  • After arrival, Emmett went to live with his uncle and cousins in a beat down shack, in the middle of a southern cotton field.
  • Hey Uncle!
  • Hey Emmet! Welcome to Money. Why don't you come on inside and say hello to your cousins.
