No one could have fathomed the impact that fourteen-year-old Emmett Till’s death would have on race relations, politics, and civil rights after he was brutally murdered in the sweltering Mississippi Delta.
Young Emmett’s death had a direct influence on award-winning freelance journalist Jamal Peterson who travels to the Mississippi Delta to cover the murder trial and gets more than he bargained.
The men who killed Emmett Till are acquitted, but they do not escape a supernatural justice meted upon them by Emmett’s ghost. Negroes in the Delta view Emmett Till’s ghost as a blessing when his specter begins to strike fear in the hearts and minds of evildoers.
This novel is intended to commemorate the death of Emmett Till.
