Emmett Till’s Accuser Recants Part of Her Story — 60 Years After His Beating Death Stoked Civil Rights Movement

The woman at the center of the Emmett Till murder case has spoken out for the first time, more than 60 years later, admitting that part of her story about the black teenager is false, a new book claims.

Till’s brutal beating death in Mississippi in 1955, the acquittal of his professed killers by an all-white jury and the photos of his dead body sparked outrage outside the state — becoming a catalyst for the national civil rights movement.

Authorities say the 14-year-old from Chicago was killed during a visit to Mississippi after Carolyn Bryant Donham, a white woman then named Carolyn Bryant, reportedly accused him of grabbing her by the hand and waist and acting lewdly at her shop.

Till was kidnapped days later from a relative’s home and then beaten and mutilated, before being shot, by Donham’s shop-owner husband at the time, Roy Bryant, and his half-brother, J.W. Milam.

Till’s body was sunk in the Tallahatchie River, where it was eventually found floating.

After a highly publicized trial, Bryant and Milam were acquitted of Till’s kidnapping and murder in September 1955 by an all-white, all-male jury. They deliberated for an hour. 

Donham testified at the trial and, according to Vanity Fair, her allegations were entered into the record and shared with reporters by her attorneys — but they were not heard by the jury, who had been excused from the courtroom.

In January 1956, Bryant and Milam confessed to their guilt in Till’s death in a Look magazine article. (Both men have since died.)

Donham avoided public attention for much of her life, ignoring journalists’ repeated requests. But she sat down with author and Duke University scholar Timothy B. Tyson 10 years ago for his new book, The Blood of Emmett Till, according to Vanity Fair and the Austin American-Statesman.

Donham’s 2007 interview with, when she was 72, is being published for the first time. Of her accusation that Till had physically and verbally harassed her, she told Tyson, according to Vanity Fair: “That part’s not true.”

“Honestly, I just don’t remember,” Donham said of her fateful meeting with Till, according to the Statesman. “It was 50 years ago. You tell these stories for so long that they seem true.” Donham’s allegation that Till whistled at her has also been disputed.

On the stand in 1955, however, Donham claimed Till had said something “unprintable” to her and she was “scared to death,” according to Vanity Fair.

Tyson said Donham, now 82, wrote her own memoir, More Than a Wolf Whistle, which is kept at the University of North Carolina but will not be available until the 2030s, at Donham’s request, according to Vanity Fair and the Statesman. (University officials could not immediately confirm the memoir’s existence.)

During their meeting, Tyson said Donham told him, “Nothing that boy did could ever justify what happened to him.” She also expressed feeling “tender sorrow” for Till’s mother, Mamie Elizabeth Till-Mobley.

Messages left with Donham and her relatives for comment on Tyson’s book were not returned Friday.

The Compassionate Mind Approach to Beating Overeating

The Compassionate Mind Approach to Beating Overeating


This self-help book explores the problems created by having ready access to high fat foods designed to taste good. Because we evolved in conditions of relative scarcity we have few natural food inhibitors and so most diet books try to encourage people to inhibit their eating by highly rule governed behaviours which have to be constantly worked at. However, this can lead to various forms of self-criticism which can undermine efforts at self-control. As a result our relationship with eating can be complex, multifaceted and problematic. Beating Overeating Using Compassion Focused Therapy uses Compassion Focused Therapy – a groundbreaking new therapeutic approach – to understand and work with our urges and passions for food. We can learn to enjoy and accept food and pay attention to our biological and emotional needs. This book is for people who have tried diets and found that they don’t work and will enable the reader to have a healthier and happier relationship with food and their body. Topics covered: ? The relationship between our brains and food, the evolutionary background to finding, conserving and eating food ? How too much or too little food affects the brain, why diets don’t work, factors affecting our eating behaviour (tastes, stress, comfort, etc) ? Body shape and culture ? Developing an inner compassion for one’s relationship with food – recognising what we need and what is helpful

Tim Zickuhr Arrested: ‘Ice Road Truckers’ Star Accused of Kidnapping And Beating Prostitute

Tim Zickuhr, one of the drivers on History’s reality TV show “Ice Road Truckers: Deadliest Roads,” is accused of kidnapping, beating and threatening to kill a Las Vegas prostitute named Snow White, according to multiple media reports.

Zickuhr, who appears in the second season of the “Ice Road Truckers” spinoff, allegedly hired the prostitute in December and gave her his ATM card, telling her to withdraw the money for her services, The Hollywood Reporter said, citing court papers.

But she reportedly took out too much money.

I only withdrew the $ 80 I was supposed to and an additional $ 120 that I wasn’t,” Snow White, real name Lisa Cadeau, said in an email to the New York Daily News.

Zickuhr allegedly went door to door looking for Cadeau, she said in her email. When he finally caught up to her, Zickuhr demanded $ 1,000, she said.

At various points during the ordeal that followed, Zickuhr allegedly beat her, tied her up with backpack straps, poured cold water over her from a mop bucket, locked her in a closet and forced her to jump from a second-floor window and onto a carport, according to a police report cited by multiple media outlets.

She told the Daily News that she gave him $ 300. When she couldn’t pay the rest, he demanded the number of someone who could. That’s when Cadeau, who had been a “citizen source” for police, gave him the number of a cop who had told her to call if she was ever in trouble, the Las Vegas Sun reports.

Zickuhr, not knowing he was speaking to a police officer, said that if he didn’t get the money, “he was going to go to Mexico to kill Snow White,” according to an arrest report cited by KVVU-TV.

Then, he put Cadeau on the line.

“Help me, he’s going to kill me,” she reportedly said.

Police say that when arrested, Zickuhr “immediately admitted that he made a mistake,” adding that he had planned to put an ad for her on Craigslist and force her to have sex for money for his benefit, according to the Sun.

Cadeau suffered injuries to her face and arms as well as cuts on her wrist where she had been tied up.

In a promotional video for “Ice Road Truckers: Deadliest Roads,” Zickuhr described himself as “an adrenaline junkie” and said “the action is the juice for me.”

He also called himself an “outlaw,” something that could soon be true in a very literal sense as he faces charges of kidnapping, extortion and coercion.

His next court appearance is scheduled for May 6.
