Women of the Movement Season 2
Women of the Movement Season 2 release date has yet to be announced by ABC. The television series has been on the air for a time now. So, the network will most likely determine whether to renew or cancel the series based on the ratings. We believe Women of the Movement will not be canceled since it depicts a historical fact about a powerful, activist African-American woman.

Women of the Movement Episodes
E1: Mother and Son
The show opens on July 25, 1941, with a scene in which Mamie, an African-American woman, gives birth to his son Emmett. The plot then jumps to 14 years later. Emmett is a teenager who wants to visit Mamie’s uncle Mose in Mississippi. Mamie, on the other hand, does not want Emmett to visit Uncle Mose because of the South’s racist attitudes toward black people. After some consideration, she reluctantly leaves Emmett.
On the plantation, Emmett gets friends with Mose’s sons and grandsons. All of the boys feel hungry on one of Emmet’s vacation days, so they head to town to buy something to eat, where they shop at “The Bryants’.” Very naïve, Emmett tries to get to know the cashier woman who is a white. However, it does not end well for Emmett.
E2: Only Skin
After a few days of searching, Mamie finds that Emmett is no longer alive. He was discovered dead in a river, the victim of a gunshot. The criminals attempt to hide the crime. Mamie, on the other hand, does not appear to be willing to cover it.
Meanwhile, Emmett’s body is transported to Chicago, where he was born. Mamie is insistent on seeing his son’s body. She decides that Emmett’s casket would be displayed openly so that everyone can see what the whites did to him.
E3: Let The People See
Emmett’s murder investigation is still ongoing. Meanwhile, in the church, Emmett’s body is displayed to the public before being buried. Emmett’s death is widely publicized, and everyone is talking about Mamie and Emmett. Despite accusations that the deceased body does not belong to Emmett, it is agreed to hold a hearing on the issue. Mamie is called to testify in Mississippi’s court, but she is threatened with death if she does so. The NAACP is attempting to protect and support her.
Emmett’s trial, which Mamie also attends, takes place in Mississippi. The NAACP stands behind Mamie and is working to find more witnesses to testify. Uncle Mose also testifies and narrates the events of that night. By the way, the identity of the 3rd person who was with Bryant and Milam the night they took Emmett is still unknown.
E5: Mothers and Sons
The trial is still going on. Carolyn Bryant testifies against Emmett, but the court does not accept her testimony. The NAACP is trying to bring the other witnesses to court. The 3rd man in the truck the night Emmett was abducted has yet to be identified.
E6: The Last Word
The trial comes to a close, but Bryant and Milam are found not guilty by the jury. Mamie begins to give public speeches about his son’s death and black people’s civil rights. Mamie’s transformation into an activist is depicted in the last episode, along with that of other activists of the time, such as Martin Luther King and Rosa Parks. Emmett Till’s killing becomes a turning point in the civil rights movement.
