Emmy-Nominated Documentary Filmmaker
Keith Beauchamp attended the Southern University of Baton Rouge where he studied criminal justice in hopes of becoming a civil rights attorney. As a young boy in Louisiana, Beauchamp experienced his share of run-ins with racism but it wasnt until an incident in which undercover police officers assaulted him for dancing with a white woman that he felt compelled to leave the south to pursue his dream of becoming a filmmaker.
In the fall of 1997, Beauchamp relocated from Baton Rouge to New York City. He quickly found work at Big Baby Films, a company founded by childhood friends that focused on music video production. Beauchamp honed his behind-the-camera skills while he spent his evenings doing research and reaching out to anyone who might have information on the Emmett Till case. Beauchamp was just ten years old when he came across an issue of Jet magazine that had a picture of Emmett Tills dead body and he soon learned the horrific story behind the boys murder.
In 1999, Beauchamp founded Till Freedom Come Productions, a company devoted to socially significant projects that both educate and entertain. He has devoted the past nine years of his life to pursuing justice for Emmett Till. In connection with this cause, Beauchamp traveled extensively between New York and Mississippi to reinvestigate the murder and subsequent trial. Throughout his journey, he located witnesses who had never before spoken about the case, befriended Tills mother, and worked with such influential figures as Muhammad Ali and Rev. Al Sharpton. Amidst all his work, Beauchamp was persistently lobbying both the state of Mississippi and the Federal Government to re-open the Emmett Till murder investigation.
On May 10th, 2004, the United States Department of Justice reopened this 51 year-old murder case citing Beauchamps documentary The Untold Story of Emmett Louis Till as both a major factor in their decision and the starting point for their investigation. In May of 2005, Emmetts body was exhumed and most recently, the FBI turned over their evidence to the appropriate District Attorney in Mississippi.
Beauchamps newest project is the television documentary series Murder in Black and White, hosted by Reverend Al Sharpton. A collaboration between Beauchamps Till Freedom Come Productions and the FBIs Cold Case Unit, it reveals the FBIs attempt to bring justice to unsolved civil rights cold cases of the 1940s and 50s. The compelling series draws first-hand information from eyewitnesses, FBI case agents as well as the people who knew the victims -- their children, siblings, family members and friends, most of whom have yet to speak publicly.
Beauchamp has been featured on 60 Minutes, ABC World New Tonight, Court TV, MSNBC, CNN, and BBC, as well as in hundreds of publications around the world including The New York Times, The Washington Post, USA Today, Associated Press, and The Chicago Sun Times.
Beauchamps projects in connection with the Emmett Till case include the documentary The Untold Story of Emmett Louis Till, and a feature film that he produced with Frederick Zollo (Mississippi Burning, Ghosts of Mississippi, Quiz Show) based on Beauchamps eleven year journey in connection with this case. He is a frequent lecturer at colleges and universities around the country.
