Women Of The Movement - Glynn Turman Joins Cast

Emmy winner Glynn Turman has joined the cast of ABC’s limited series Women of the Movement, from creator-writer Marissa Jo Cerar and a producing team that includes Jay-Z, Will Smith and Aaron Kaplan.

The six-episode limited series, set to premiere in 2021, centers on Mamie Till-Mobley (Adrienne Warren), who devoted her life to seeking justice for her son Emmett Till (Cedric Joe), following his brutal killing in the Jim Crow south.

Turman will play Mose Wright, Emmett Till’s (Joe) great uncle. A sharecropper, minister, and proud family man, Mose’s testimony during Emmett’s murder trial was noted among the bravest moments of the Civil Rights Movement; it was one of the first, if not the first time a Black man stood in open court in the South and accused a white man of a crime.
