Its Mississippi in the summer of 1955, and Rose Lee Carter cant wait to move north. But for now, shes living with her sharecropper grandparents on a white mans cotton plantation. Then, one town over, an AfricanAmerican boy, Emmett Till, is killed for allegedly whistling at a white woman. When Tills murderers are unjustly acquitted, Rose realizes that the South needs a change . . . and that she should be part of the movement. Linda Jacksons moving debut seamlessly blends a fictional portrait of an AfricanAmerican family and factual events from a famous trial that provoked change in race relations in the United States.
