American rapper Jay-Z and American actor Will Smith will produce together a new ABC docuseries titled ‘Let the World See’ which will premiere on January 6, 2022.
The three-part series which will be ABC’s second contribution to the Till family, will follow the story of Mamie Till-Mobley’s torturous path to getting justice for her son, Emmett Till, a 14-year-old African American who was lynched to death.
The special limited docuseries will also focus on the civil rights movement that followed after Till-Mobley stood up for her son after his gruesome murder in 1955.
According to ABC, ‘Let The World See,’ the series executive produced by Jay-Z and produced by Smith through his Westbrook studios, “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.”
The series will feature real accounts from Till’s family including interviews with his cousins, a witness of the abduction, activists, FBI agents, lawyers, and more.
