Dar He: The Story of Emmett Till is written by and starring Mike Wiley. In 1955, a 14-year-old black Chicago youth traveled to the Mississippi Delta with country kinfolk and southern cooking on his mind. He walked off the train and into a world he could never understand — a world of thick color lines, of hard-held class systems and unspeakable taboos. This riveting play chronicles the murder, trial and unbelievable confessions of the men accused of Till’s murder.
