Webinar: The Emmett Till Story featuring Keith Beauchamp

January 17, 2022 @ 6:00 pm

Keith Beauchamp is a Brooklyn-based filmmaker who investigated the murder of Emmett Till 50 years after the younger’s death in 1955. Beauchamp’s research over nine years led to the documentary The Untold Story of Emmett Louis Till, which led the U.S. Department of Justice to reopen its investigation in 2004.

In our conversation, Beauchamp will explain why he has followed leads and research for the documentary, the people he’s encountered and the relationship he built with Mamie Till Mobley, Emmett’s mother, and the driving force behind keeping her son’s memory and legacy alive. While in the production phase of a new documentary on Till’s murder, Beauchamp will share the backstory to his decades of advocacy on behalf of the Till family and his subsequent collaboration with the FBI to help bring about justice.
