Emmett Till's kidnapping, death & justice! 

 The gruesome abduction and murder of Emmett Till in 1955 is the subject of a new ABC limited series starting this week.

His mother, Mamie Till-Mobley, is the centrepiece of "Women of the Movement."

She used the loss of her one and only child as a springboard for her civil rights activism, as shown in the programme.

Throughout the six-hour performance, viewers will learn how one woman's unwavering pursuit of justice changed the course of history in the United States.

Played by Adrienne Warren, this courageous mom organises people after the death of her son.

Till was barely 14 years old when he travelled to Mississippi to see a family member.

When a white lady approached him, he was accused of flirting or whistling at her.

He was thrown into the Tallahatchie River while being shackled to a metal fan with barbed wire.

In 1956, Bryant and Milam told Look magazine that they had killed Emmett Till in a storey.

"Women of the Movement" is a big moment for broadcast television.
