Melody Gardot "Preacherman" (Calum Macdiarmid, dir.)

Melody Gardot - Preacherman

Many people feel that the spark of the civil rights movement was the tragic death of 14-year old Emmett Till in Mississippi on August 28, 1955. Now, almost sixty years later, director Calum MacDiarmid recreates that incident for Melody Gardot's new song — showing a different kind of intensity than the Run The Jewels clip from last month, but with the same messages conveyed.

Both the song and video have been endorsed by the Emmett Till Legacy Foundation.
