The Carolyn Bryant Project
Theatre

Dir. Nataki Garrett
2018

Carolyn Bryant succumbs to guilt over the lynching of Emmett Till.

Emmett Louis Till was a young African-American who was lynched in Mississippi in 1955 at the age of 14, after being accused of offending a white woman in her family's grocery store.

What happened in those fateful minutes shared between Bryant and Till in the store? Creators Nataki Garrett and Andrea LeBlanc layer historical transcripts, video imagery, and re-imagined encounters to expose what lies beneath the exchange between Carolyn Bryant and Emmett Till.
