Críticas:

"Tyson's profound conclusion moves the Emmett Till tragedy into the present time." * CounterPunch * "Tyson does an admirable job of condensing and updating information about the case, using a 2006 FBI report on Till's murder to weave together a historical tapestry." * Austin American-Statesman * "Drawing on Bryant's only interview, Tyson reexamines the crime that launched the civil rights movement." * AARP * "Skillfully tells the story of the gruesome murder and its still-resonant aftermath." * Tampa Bay Times * "Apply[s] diligent research, scrupulous perspective and a vigorous aptitude for weaving pertinent public and intimate details." * USA Today * "Clear, concise and well-documented." * Florida Times-Union * "A riveting, richly detailed account of the crime that ignited the civil rights movement." * Bookpage * "Compelling.... With Tyson's new book, and Carolyn Bryant Donham's remarks, we have reason to revisit a period in our history when bigotry, blood, and sacrifice became a call to action. " * Vanity Fair * "Till's memory burns brighter with each passing year and remains a touchstone for understanding white violence against black men today." -- William Ferris, co-editor of The Encyclopedia of Southern Culture "Bolstered by prodigious research... the well-presented details... add atmosphere. In addition, Tyson is masterful at explaining how the Till murder became a major cause of the civil rights movement. Especially resonant today is the author's focus on obtaining voting rights for blacks in Southern states that denied those rights before the Till murder.... Tyson skillfully demonstrates how, in our allegedly post-racial country, a "national racial caste system" remains in place." * Kirkus Reviews * "Ripe for optioning." * Hollywood Reporter * "This highly readable book is likely to remain the final account of the Till murder and trial and its impact in the United States and abroad. It will appeal to anyone interested in African American history and the judicial process." * Library Journal * "Rip-roaring.... Tyson has produced a brief, sharp re-evaluation of the case, reminding us that a murder 61 years ago still has resonance." * Star News * "More than simply a retelling of the story of Till's death and the subsequent trial, the book incorporates new sources into the narrative... In the course of telling this story, Tyson explores larger, more important lessons about America's long, bitter struggle with race." * Greensboro News & Record * "Tyson gives us a history that challenges everything we thought we knew about Emmett Till." -- Crystal Feimster, author of Southern Horrors "Groundbreaking new evidence and Tyson's masterful prose make The Blood of Emmett Till a devastating indictment of America, both past and present." -- Danielle McGuire, author of At the Dark End of the Street "A scathing re-examination.... [Tyson] makes it all new and relevant." * Winston-Salem Journal * "Tim Tyson's profound eloquence and groundbreaking evidence capture the cries of Emmett Till and the rise of a movement, and will call us to the cause of justice today." -- Rev. Dr. William J. Barber, II, president of the North Carolina NAACP and author of The Third Reconstruction: Moral Mondays, Fusion Politics, and the Rise of a New Social Justice Movement "In many ways, Timothy Tyson is the ideal author to explore new details surrounding the lynching death of Emmett Till...." * Winston-Salem Chronicle * "Neither lurid tale nor political iconography.... Tyson is best with intimacies, when he writes about local people and their relationship to one another and to place. He takes special care with mise en scene, providing a rich portrait of the world of Emmett Till." * Chapter 16 * "The Blood of Emmett Till is less concerned with the historical cowardice of Bryant and the white men who effectively lynched Till, and much more invested in the bravery of Emmett Till's mother, Mamie, and of the courage of the black activists who worked for voting rights and justice amidst the violent horror of life in Mississippi...." * Yes! Weekly * "Tyson's remarkable achievement is that each thread is explored in detail, backstories as well as main events, while he maintains a page-turning readability for what might seem a familiar tale. Cinematically engaging, harrowing, and poignant, Tyson's monumental work illuminates Emmett Till's murder and serves as a powerful reminder that certain stories in history merit frequent retelling." * Publishers Weekly (starred review) * "Tyson's powerful narrative sheds new light on the circumstances that led to the murder, makes the case that its influence stretches from the Montgomery bus boycott to the angry protests in Ferguson, Missouri - and argues that the country hasn't yet come to grips with the roots of any of the above." * Raleigh News & Observer * "Emotional and electric." * Toronto Star * "An account of absorbing and sometimes horrific detail. Comprehensive in scope...." * The New York Times * "From one of our finest civil rights historians comes this harrowing, brilliant, and crucial book. The full story of Emmett Till has never before been told. It will terrify you; it should. It will inspire you; it must." -- Jeff Sharlet, New York Times bestselling author of The Family "When good and evil are evident, moral indignation comes easily, and readers might feel self-congratulatory, relieved that we are nothing like that anymore. We need historians like Timothy Tyson to break that spell for us." * Knoxville News Sentinel * "Tim Tyson has universalized the Emmett Till story to make it an American tragedy. His bracing, granular narrative provides fresh insight into the way race has informed and deformed our democratic institutions." -- Diane McWhorter, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Carry Me Home "Tyson's meticulous and absorbing retelling of the events leading up to the horrific lynching in 1955 includes an admission from Till's accuser that some of her testimony was false." * New York Times Book Review * "It's a beautifully written book, and its importance can't be overstated." * NPR * "Eloquent and outraged.... A stunning success essential for our times." -- Nell Irvin Painter, author of The History of White People "I couldn't stop reading Timothy Tyson's The Blood of Emmett Till. It is civil rights history that captivates the reader like a mystery novel...." -- Patricia Bell-Scott, author of The Firebrand and the First Lady "Astonishingly relevant.... At once thrilling and agonizing." * Jezebel * "No American historian working today captures the nuances of white supremacy and the ways in which it engulfs us all more convincingly than Tyson." -- Steve Nathans-Kelly * First of the Month * "The Blood of Emmett Till unfolds like a movie, moving from scene to reconstructed scene, panning out to help the reader understand the racism and bigotry that crafted the citadel of white supremacy and focusing in on intimate exchanges imbued with meaning...." -- Lawrence Jackson * The Atlanta Journal-Constitution * "A critical book... [that] manages to turn the past into prophecy and demands that we do the one vital thing we aren't often enough asked to do with history: learn from it." -- Vann R. Newkirk II * The Atlantic * "What sets Tyson's book apart is the wide-angle lens he uses to examine the lynching, and the ugly parallels between past and present... A terrific writer and storyteller, Tyson compels a closer look at a heinous crime and the consequential decisions, large and small, that made it a national issue." * Minneapolis Star Tribune * "Tim Tyson's genius as a historian, author, and social visionary informs his unique commitment to write truth to power authentically and fearlessly." -- Dr. Benjamin Chavis, former executive director of the NAACP "An insightful, revealing and important new inquiry into the tragedy that mobilized and energized a generation of Americans to stand and fight against racial bigotry." -- Bryan Stevenson, New York Times bestselling author of Just Mercy "The Blood of Emmett Till is a work critical not just to our understanding of something that happened in America in 1955 but of what happens in America here and now. It is a jolting and powerful book... swift-flying and meticulously researched." -- Leonard Pitts * The Washington Post *

Reseña del editor:

* Longlisted for the National Book Award * Winner of the Robert F. Kennedy Book Award * A New York Times Notable Book * A Washington Post Notable Book * An NPR Best Book of 2017 * A Los Angeles Times Best Book of 2017 * An Atlanta Journal-Constitution Best Southern Book of 2017 * This extraordinary New York Times bestseller reexamines a pivotal event of the civil rights movement-the 1955 lynching of Emmett Till-"and demands that we do the one vital thing we aren't often enough asked to do with history: learn from it" (The Atlantic). In 1955, white men in the Mississippi Delta lynched a fourteen-year-old from Chicago named Emmett Till. His murder was part of a wave of white terrorism in the wake of the 1954 Supreme Court decision that declared public school segregation unconstitutional. Only weeks later, Rosa Parks thought about young Emmett as she refused to move to the back of a city bus in Montgomery, Alabama. Five years later, Black students who called themselves "the Emmett Till generation" launched sit-in campaigns that turned the struggle for civil rights into a mass movement. Till's lynching became the most notorious hate crime in American history. But what actually happened to Emmett Till-not the icon of injustice, but the flesh-and-blood boy? Part detective story, part political history, The Blood of Emmett Till "unfolds like a movie" (The Atlanta Journal-Constitution), drawing on a wealth of new evidence, including a shocking admission of Till's innocence from the woman in whose name he was killed. "Jolting and powerful" (The Washington Post), the book "provides fresh insight into the way race has informed and deformed our democratic institutions" (Diane McWhorter, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Carry Me Home) and "calls us to the cause of justice today" (Rev. Dr. William J. Barber, II, president of the North Carolina NAACP).
