      Tim Tyson, author of The Blood of Emmett Till
      Wisconsin Historical Society
      5:00 pm
      In 1955 a young black boy was brutally killed in retaliation for flirting with a white store clerk. His mother chose an open casket, fueling the civil rights movement and inspiring Rosa Parks and others. Even today Emmett Till’s name is chanted during protests. Amidst the resurgence of Black Lives Matter, the events in Charlottesville and the expressions of hate by the alt right, Tim Tyson will revisit the lessons our nation must learn if we are to move beyond our self-imposed racial boundaries.
