Death of innocence : the story of the hate crime that changed America by Mamie Till-Mobley( Book )

6 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 1,517 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mamie Carthan was an ordinary African-American woman growing up in 1930s Chicago, living under the strong steady influence of her mother's care. She fell in love with and married Louis Till, and while the marriage didn't last, they did have a beautiful baby boy, Emmett." "In August 1955, Emmett was visiting family in Mississippi when he was kidnapped from his bed in the middle of the night by two white men and brutally murdered. His crime: allegedly whistling at a white woman in a convenience story. His mother began a career of activism when she insisted on an open-casket viewing of her son's gruesomely disfigured body. More than a hundred thousand people attended the service. The trial of J.W. Milam and Roy Bryant, accused of kidnapping and murdering Emmett (the two were eventually acquitted of the crime), was considered the first full-scale media event of the civil rights movement."
Special interest : a novel by Chris Benson( Book )

3 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Angela McKenzie, an aggressive Black reporter on the make, has come to Washington, D.C., looking for the big story, looking to rewrite her own. She gets her chance when she least expects it. Angela stumbles into the hidden world of a close friend--a political consultant and lobbyist. What she discovers is a place where things are never the way they appear, and where power-hungry people will go to extremes to maintain appearances. Special Interest is the story of power politics in Washington and the incestuous relationships of its power players--lawmakers and law-breakers, news makers and news reporters, politicians and lobbyists. It is a tale of political intrigue that exposes the harsh reality behind the alabaster façades--the decisions being made in back rooms and boardrooms.--Dust jacket
