Pursuing Healing over Justice - Never Forget!
We can only discover true wholeness after we have found truth. Truth can't manifest unless we have an opportunity to observe different perspectives that give you different details of what happened. In this film, 55TillNow, Mayor Johnny B. Thomas examines his childhood that was impacted by the death of Emmett Till.
Thomas was born and raised in the midst of this tragedy and has lived in the same community all of his life.
