Danielle Deadwyler (The Harder They Fall) is getting serious awards buzz for her deeply affecting performance as Mamie Till Mobley, the mother of 14-year-old Emmett Till. Emmett was infamously lynched in 1955 while visiting his cousins in Mississippi. Mamie’s heartrending grief became a call to action, and she dedicated her life to a relentless pursuit of justice for Emmett in a tireless campaign to ensure that her son was never forgotten.

“Danielle Deadwyler gives the breakout performance of the year as a Black activist mother who used the 1955 lynching of her son Emmett Till to galvanize the civil rights movement. Chinonye Chukwu crafts this emotional powerhouse into essential viewing.” – Peter Travers, ABC News
