United States v. Till (1945)

John Edgar Wideman
John Edgar Wideman has written "A Black and White Case" for Esquire. Available here, it's an account of -- in fact, a meditation on -- the interaction between the 1945 capital court-martial of Army Private Louis Till in Italy and the murder of his son Emmett Till a decade later in Mississippi.
