A Legacy of Hope in Memory of Emmett Louis Till

Emmett Louis Till Age 14 His brutal murder on August 28, 1955 and the acquittal of the murderers sparked the modern Civil Rights movement.

THE EMMETT TILL LEGACY FOUNDATION (ETLF) dedicates its ongoing efforts to turning an ugly part of American History..... the brutal murder of Emmett Till into a positive, inspired and empowered future for youth in America and across the world.  ETLF wants to be a part of the solution and believes that youth represent our future and deserve to reach their fullest potential, unlike the severed life and the denial of justice that Emmett and his family experienced. Youth may not experience the same form of lynching that ended Emmett's life. But, many of the probems facing youth and their families today are nightmares. ETLF defines those nightmares as horrific as lynching but in the form of hopelessness, lack of adequate education, poverty, poor health, obesity, joblessness, early incarceration, the lack of civic and political engagement and so many other forms of disenfranchisement.

ETLF knows that without knowledge and understanding of the past, we are subject to have history repeat itself. We cannot allow that to happen. With adequate support of ETLF initiatives and programs, a huge difference will be made in the lives of many.

The Emmett Till Legacy Foundation partners with supporters of every community to bring HOPE, actionable solutions and foster an overall mutual wellness to the lives of youth, women and their families around us.

Emmett Till was one of the first. Let's make Trayvon Martin one of the last.
