Support the Opera

You must continuously tell Emmett Till’s story until everyone’s consciousness rises. Only then will there be justice for Emmett Till. –  Mamie Till Mobley

“Celebration tonight with the creators of the magnificent Emmett Till opera. Clare Coss, librettist and Mary Watkins, composer.  With NYS Attorney General Letitia James and Assemblyman Daniel O’Donnell.  At the home of the ever generous Janet Dewart Bell.”  
– Carol Jenkins, Host, Black America
