Honoring Emmett Till on his birthday, July 25, 2013

Will be the Battle siblings, Thelma and Robert who used to live in the same house Emmett was dragged from in East Money Mississippi.

Join TRIBE Family Channel and host Joey Pinkney for another episode of ‘Voices of Wisdom’ with former sharecroppers of East Money, Mississippi, Dr. Thelma Battle Buckner and her brother Bishop Robert Battle.

Dr. Buckner shares how her family navigated periods of deep-seeded racism in her new release, "The Battle of a Daytime Nightmare." Faith, finesse and a lot of fortitude kept their family year after year, when the way of the south cheated them as black sharecroppers unapologetically, murdered their grandmother and even stole their inheritance-80 acres of oil and mineral rich land. The Battle of a Daytime Nightmare www.thelmabattlebuckner.com
