    In 1955, a 14-year-old black Chicago youth traveled to the Mississippi Delta with country kinfolk and southern cooking on his mind. He walked into a world he could never understand and stepped into his gruesome fate by whistling at a white woman. This riveting one-actor, the multiple-character drama starring actor/playwright Mike Wiley chronicles the murder, trial and unbelievable confession of the men accused of Till's lynching. A true story that echoes into our own time.
