Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture

The Emmett Till Project

We will mark the anniversary of the 1955 murder of Emmett Till on August 28. The Schomburg Center's Emmett Till Project, a digital humanities project that was created in 2015 to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the brutal killing and trial, is worth exploring. The website is an excellent resource which contains short videos, podcasts, digitized newspaper clippings, essays, and recommendations for resources within the Schomburg Center collections about the Emmett Till case. Learn more and share this important project's resources and information.
