Music for The Mississippi Civil Rights Museum (2017) – Narrated by Oprah Winfrey

Narrated by Oprah Winfrey, this theater program recounts the tragedy of Emmett Till’s brutal murder in 1955. Brought to national attention when the graphic photos of his body were published in Jet magazine, Till’s death is seen by many as the spark that helped ignite the civil rights movement.


In this evocative program, former SNCC leaders and volunteers recount with solemn pride their experiences during the pivotal summer of 1964. Set inside a recreated country church, it recalls the heady days of mass meetings as well as the dangers these young people faced as they set out to change Mississippi – and the nation.
