About the Emmett Till Memory Project
The Emmett Till Memory Project is your complete guide to the legacy of Till’s murder. The app takes users to the most important sites in the Mississippi Delta and Chicago. At each site, the app provides expert-vetted narratives, access to relevant archival documents, and a collection of historic and contemporary photographs. The ETMP teaches users what happened at each site in 1955 and how the sites have been commemorated since 1955.
The ETMP is a collaborative production of the Emmett Till Interpretive Center and scholars across the country: Dave Tell, Davis Houck, Pablo Correa, and Benjamin Saulsberry put a lot of work into it. It is funded by the General Research Fund at the University of Kansas and the Institute for Museum and Library Services.
Help us make the ETMP better by TAKING A SURVEY! The more sites you visit, the more helpful your survey will be. Please consider taking a pre-guided tour or visiting as many sites as you can (literally or virtually). Either way, every survey helps! Thank you!
To support the work of Emmett Till commemoration and racial reconciliation in the Delta, please support the Emmett Till Interpretive Center. ETIC works in one of the poorest counties in the country, and its work depends on a broad range of contributions. Thank you!
