We are honored to welcome Rev. Wheeler Parker Jr., cousin and childhood best friend of Emmett Till and the last living witness to his whistle and kidnapping, for a moderated conversation.


Seating is limited and free tickets are now sold out. Any unoccupied seats will be released to the public at 5:45PM, and overflow seating will be available in Room 211 in the Museum with a live simulcast. We will also livestream the event on our YouTube channel. A book signing follows the discussion; the Raven Bookstore will sell books on site.
