Janet Langhart Cohen’s Anne & Emmett
Anne and Emmett is an imaginary conversation between Anne Frank and Emmett Till, both victims of racial intolerance and hatred. Frank is the 13-year-old Jewish girl whose diary provided a gripping perspective of the Holocaust. Till is the 14-year-old African-American boy whose brutal murder in Mississippi sparked the American Civil Rights Movement.
“It was a powerful, emotional, moving. I hope people…all over the world see this play”
-Wolf Blitzer, CNN news anchor
“Should be seen in every classroom in America”
– the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Anne and Emmett contains derogatory racial language and imagery that could be disturbing, but reflects the realities of the lives and deaths of these two young victims of hate crimes.
