Let The World See is a fresh and deep examination of Ms. Mamie Till-Mobley’s fight to bring her son’s body home to Chicago and her pivotal yet heartbreaking decision to have an open-casket funeral for the public to see, which ultimately served as a turning point for the civil rights movement,” ABC writes.

Let The World See will weave in first-hand accounts from Till’s family, with interviews from his cousins, a witness of the abduction, activists, FBI agents, lawyers, and more. Grammy-nominated producer Salaam Remi will compose an original soundtrack to be played over interviews, footage, and other features of the series.
