Emmett Till Family Calling For Arrest of Carolyn Bryant Donham After Old Arrest Warrant Surfaces

An arrest warrant has been found nearly 70 years later for Carolyn Bryant Donham, the woman who accused Emmett Till of sexual harassment.
An unserved warrant for Carolyn Bryant Donham has recently been discovered in the basement of a Mississippi courthouse. Now in her ’80s, Donham accused Chicago teenager Emmett Till of flirting with her during his 1955 visit to Mississippi, which turned fatal. In August of that year, Till was visiting relatives in the Delta region of Mississippi, where he was later abducted and killed by a violent mob of whites, including her now-deceased husband Roy Bryant, who heard about his alleged encounter with Donham.

Last week, a warrant for Donham was found, identifying her as “Mrs. Roy Bryant” on the document. According to Associated Press, the warrant, dated August 29, 1955, was found inside a file folder that had been placed in a box.
