    In 1955 Emmett Till, age 14, traveled from his home in Chicago to visit family in Mississippi. Several weeks later he returned dead; allegedly he had whistled at a white woman. His mother, Mamie, wanted the world to see what had been done to her son. She chose to leave his casket open. Images of her brutalized boy were published widely. While Emmett's story is known, there's a dark sidenote that's rarely mentioned. Ten years earlier Emmett's father had been executed by the army for rape and murder.

    Frantz Fanon (1925 - 1961) fought to free Algeria from French rule and rallied against the oppressive grip of colonialism. In this fictionalized view of the revolutionary's life, an African-American writer travels the world to do research for a biography of Fanon. In a tale that is part love story, mystery, and biography, Fanon examines how a political radical's views apply in a post-9/11 world.
