Janet Langhart Cohen's Anne & Emmett 

Janet Langhart Cohen’s Anne and Emmett  is an imaginary conversation between Anne Frank and Emmett Till, both victims of racial intolerance and hatred. The beyond-the-grave encounter draws the startling similarities between the two youth’s harrowing experiences at the hand of societies that would not protect them.
