Author Timothy B. Tyson’s “The Blood of Emmett Till” begins with a confession that most knew but few had heard. “That part’s not true,” Carolyn Bryant tells Tyson in a rare interview. Bryant is referring to testimony she gave in her husband’s trial for Till’s murder, when she said the black teenager physically accosted her in 1955.
