Before the March on Washington, before Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat, before the Mothers of the Movement — there was Mamie Till-Mobley. Her son, Emmett, was only 14 years old when he was kidnapped, tortured and murdered. By sharing the haunting image of Emmett’s body, Mamie Till-Mobley sparked what would become the civil rights movement. Through first-person narratives from her family members — and her own words — Season 2 of Reclaimed explores who Mamie Till-Mobley was before the death of her son, and who she would ultimately become.
