"I expected her to say, 'How did you get my number?' I expected her to hang up. But she didn't."

The white woman whose accusations prompted the 1955 lynching of Emmett Till talks in a memoir about getting preferential treatment from Mississippi authorities after the killing.
The decision comes despite recent revelations about an unserved arrest warrant and the 87-year-old Carolyn Bryant Donham's unpublished memoir.
Emmett Till's Chicago home is one of more than two dozen historically significant sites that will share $3 million in grant money from a preservation organization.
Carolyn Bryant Donham, the white woman who accused Till of improper advances, wrote in an unpublished memoir that she didn't want him murdered.
Carolyn Bryant Donham, who was at the center of the 1955 lynching of Black teenager Emmett Till in Mississippi, denies wanting him killed.
The unserved 1955 warrant would have charged a white woman for kidnapping Emmett Till.
The arrest warrant for Carolyn Bryant Donham was discovered last week and Till's family wants her to be charged nearly 70 years later.
