It's going to be okay Roy. I love you remember that.
When I was younger, my father would abuse me. He used a whip that hurt like h***. He cut me with knifes and got away with it. I never told anyone because I was always too scared that he would hurt me more. At school I was that creepy kid who had marks and bruises all over himself. No one wanted to be my friend. My counselor saw my bruises and sent me to therapy for 5 years. -Roy Bryant
Once my father got so mad at me he threatened to kill me the next day. I told my mom about what happened, so she took my place. We didn't know if he was going to kill me, or mother, but we found out after he killed my mother. We didn't even get to meet my baby sister. Before my mother left she gave me a teddy bear that her mother gave her. She said that as long as I had it with me, I would be safe. -Roy Bryant
Where is Emmett Till!!!
It's been 15 years since my mother died, and I am having a baby soon. I have found a way to make a living. I got away from my father, and found a loving wife named Carolyn Bryant. We own a shop named Bryant's Grocery & Meat Market. We both work there and we hope to one day get rid of the market and buy a restaurant. One day soon. -Roy Bryant
My wife came home today laughing about a teenager who was flirting with her. Who I ask her. He told me his name is Emmett Till. He also gave me his address. Kids these days she laughs. Was he black or white I ask. Black she replies. No, no black man is going to harass my wife. I yank the address out of my wifes hand and go out to look for this Emmett Till kid. -Roy Bryant
It took me 3 hours to walk to Emmett Till's house. When I got there something felt oddly familiar. I burst down the door and see a teenage boy playing with a puppy. Now I know why this house felt familiar, it's my father's house. Suddenly a heat of anger forms in my body. I wasn't mad at Emmett, but I didn't have fun in this house and neither should he, so I kidnapped Emmett Till. -Roy Bryant
I'm just like my father. I brutally beat that kid, killed him, and threw him into a river. When I asked my wife if he was black or white I didn't even care. I just wanted a reason to look for him and do this, so I could prove to my father. I can't go anywhere like this, knowing I did this. I think I should go too, with Emmett. My daughter and wife don't deserve me. They deserve each other. Goodbye. -Roy Bryant
