ABC News Sets Civil Rights Movement Docuseries


ABC News is working on the special limited docuseries Let the World See, produced in association with Shawn Carter and Roc Nation, Will Smith and Westbrook Studios, and Aaron Kaplan and Kapital Entertainment.

The series will chronicle Ms. Mamie Till-Mobley’s quest for justice that sparked the civil rights movement after her son Emmett Till’s murder. Let the World See is slated to premiere on January 6 on ABC and will air for three consecutive Thursday nights following each new episode of ABC’s upcoming limited series Women of the Movement, also produced by Roc Nation, Westbrook and Kapital.

Women of the Movement is based on the true story of Till-Mobley’s journey from reserved mother to outspoken activist in the wake of her son’s murder in the Jim Crow South.

Both limited series will be available on-demand and on Hulu the day following their premieres.
