The Till Trilogy: That Summer in Sumner

Atlas Performing Arts Center
1333 H Street NE Washington

This world premiere staging recreates the 1955 trial, "The State of Mississippi vs. Roy Bryant and J.W. Milam for the Murder of Emmett Till." Drawn from extant courtroom transcript, contemporaneous news accounts, government records and interviews, this new installment condenses the five-day trial into a compact drama, with scenes beyond the courtroom involving civil rights activist Medgar Evers and the investigative black press uncovering crucial facts in the landmark case.
