Reckoning with Remembrance: History, Injustice, and the Murder of Emmett Till
September 3rd, 2021 @ 12:00 AM - October 5th, 2021 @ 12:00 AMFree
The Emmett Till Memorial Commission erected nearly a dozen historical markers to remember and honor Till, 53 years after he was brutally lynched and killed at age 14. Since 2008, the signs have been defaced, shot at, and stolen. One of those markers, with more than 300 bullet holes, is currently on display as a reminder of the racism still experienced in America today.
