You'll find below an excellent music video based on the provocative true story of Emmett Louis Till, who, at age 14, was murdered brutally in August 1955; the acquittal of his killers helped foster a national movement to end race discrimination in America and ensure civil rights for all.
The video, titled Preacherman, from singer-songwriter Melody Gardot's album Currency of Man (June 2, 2015), was filmed in Mississippi earlier this year by director Calum MacDiarmid. A cousin of Till's appears in the video. (Read "Melody Gardot Draws on the Death of Emmett Till for 'Preacherman' Video" at Speakeasy, the blog of The Wall Street Journal.)
For a behind-the-scenes look at the video's making, watch "Behind the Scenes: Preacherman and the Legacy of Emmett Till".
If you have not read the late Jake Adam York's Persons Unknown (Crab Orchard Review and Southern Illinois University Press, 2010), I encourage you to do so. Included in the collection is the poem "Collect" that speaks to the death of Emmitt Till. I also highly recommend York's other collections, Murder Ballads (Elixer Press. 2005) and A Murmuration of Starlings (Crab Orchard Review and Southern Illinois University Press, 2008).
