‘Women of The Movement:’ The Best Miniseries I’ll Never Watch Again

The story of Emmett Till is heartbreaking.

Growing up as a Black person, we hear these stories like poor Emmett’s and they are cautionary, illuminating a gut wrenching truth: people who hate you don’t care about how young you are. They will harm you just the same.

A publication from Medium that centers the stories, poetry, essays and thoughts of women of color.
