Award-winning filmmaker Keith A. Beauchamp founded Till Freedom Come Productions in 1999, a company devoted to socially significant projects that can both teach and entertain. He has devoted the past 27 years to telling the story of Emmett Till and has travelled extensively between New York, Chicago, and Mississippi to investigate the historic murder. During this journey, Beauchamp befriended the late Mrs. Mamie Till Mobley, who took him under her wings and inspired him to join her ongoing efforts to seek justice in her son’s case. As a result of their close relationship, Beauchamp would produce and direct the 2005 award-winning documentary, THE UNTOLD STORY OF EMMETT LOUIS TILL, while persistently lobbying both the State of Mississippi and the Federal Government to reopen the Emmett Till Murder case, which was eventually reopened in 2004.
In 2007 Beauchamp began his collaboration with the FBI’s Till-inspired Civil Rights Cold Case Initiative, producing documentaries on other unsolved civil rights murders in hopes of helping federal agents with their investigations that could bring remaining perpetrators to justice. Beauchamp’s past works include TV One’s Murder in Black and White, hosted by Rev. Al Sharpton, Wanted Justice: Johnnie Mae Chappell for the History Channel, BET’s Exceptional Black Women and award-winning crime reality series The Injustice Files, produced by CBS News where he served as the Executive Producer and Host. After an almost two-decade-long friendship, producers Barbara Broccoli, Fred Zollo, EGOT winner Whoopi Goldberg and Beauchamp teamed up to finally produce the greatly anticipated theatrical feature film TILL (2022), directed by award-winning director Chinonye Chukwu.
