Five years after Emmett Till, a Black Bayonne, New Jersey mother moved heaven and earth to rescue her son from a Southwest Georgia town notorious for lynching. Boston-based documentary filmmaker Clennon L. King dedicates his 65-minute film to the 24 known Black men lynched in Blakely and Early County – the ancestral home of Cissy and Whitney Houston and Dionne Warwick – and to his father, Georgia’s legendary civil rights attorney C.B. King, who tried to prevent 24-year-old Navy veteran James Fair, Jr. from becoming victim #25. King will introduce the film, before leading a post screening discussion and audience Q&A.
