The Africana Studies Program and The Memphis Center will welcome award-winning historian Timothy B. Tyson to speak about his acclaimed and New York Times bestselling book "The Blood of Emmett Till," which made national headlines earlier this year when he revealed an interview with Till's accuser regarding the events preceding the 1955 lynching of the 14 year old. Joining Tyson that night are two respondents: Aram Goudsouzian, Chair of the History Department at the University of Memphis, and Doria Johnson, internationally-recognized historian and anti-lynching activist. A reception will be held at 5:30 p.m. The event begins at 6 p.m. with a book signing after.
