Carolyn Bryant Donham
Carolyn Bryant Donham was a white American woman who was one of Emmett Till’s alleged killers. She was also the bestselling author of a book about the murder. But she was never convicted of any crime and the case remains unsolved.
Her story was one of the most talked about events of 1955, and it’s still being debated today. Some have doubts that she will ever be prosecuted. Some say she did not tell the truth about her role in the incident.
She is now legally blind. She lives in hospice care and is 88. She has two sons. She was a writer and actress. She also served as a clerk in the Emmett Till trial. She reportedly made a few lewd comments to Till, who eventually got caught. But she never confessed or said she was guilty. She says she was just trying to help.
In 2004, she was living in Raleigh, North Carolina. She was interviewed by Timothy Tyson, a senior research scholar at Duke University. She was told that she was in poor health before her interview. But she did not say so on Tyson’s tape recordings.
Frank Lee Bryant
A year after his father’s trial for the murder of Emmett Till, Frank Lee Bryant was born. As a child, Bryant lived in Louisiana and Mississippi.
Bryant became a welder and worked for sixteen years in East Texas and Louisiana. As he grew older, he met his wife and had children with her. He also served in the U.S. Airforce. He moved to Ruleville, Sunflower County, Mississippi in 1973. However, his career would end when he married his mother. She sought solace in the fact that he was reunited with his father.
Before he married his mother, Bryant served three years in the military as a paratrooper. He then returned to work in the grocery business. He had a store in Tutwiler, Tallahatchie County, Mississippi.
Bryant was a member of the Charleston Baptist Church as a child. He was also involved in college football. He was accused of whistling at Till. He was also plagued with health problems. He was diagnosed with diabetes.
Lamar Bryant’s paintings have been shown several times. The artist has been commissioned to paint portraits of others, including boxer Evander Holyfield. Some of his work is being considered for a gallery in Atlanta. One of his portraits hangs in the main office of the microbiology department at Emory.
The artist began to paint when he was five years old. He has created hundreds of pieces, and his style has changed as he has developed. His work focuses on sports, as he believes it offers inherent motion. He also has paintings of notable people, including former Atlanta mayor Maynard Jackson.
He has painted portraits of colleagues and friends at Emory, including Linda Gooding, John Thompson and Bob Ethridge. His most recent painting, entitled Shades of Beauty and Peaches, Too, features students from the Emory microbiology department. It will be shown at several galleries in the Atlanta area. It was commissioned after the retiring director of the department praised it. He is currently negotiating with other galleries across the country for a possible exhibition.
