Profile Information

About Me:(Generous response attract more interest)
In memory of 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), est 2005, is a not for profit 501c3 organization, dedicating 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.

Our Mission: A Legacy of Hope
“We cannot afford the luxury of self pity. Our top priority now is to get on with the building process. My personal peace has come through helping boys and girls reach beyond the ordinary and strive for the extraordinary. We must teach our children to weather the hurricanes of life, pick up the pieces, and rebuild. We must impress upon our children that even when troubles rise to seven-point -one on the life’s Richter scale, they must be anchored so deeply that, though they sway, they will not topple”

Quote by Mamie Till-Mobley ( Emmett Till's mother)
November 5, 1989
at Dedication of the Civil Rights Memorial
with Southern Poverty Law Center HQ, Montgomery, Alabama

The Emmett Till Legacy Foundation partners with supporters of every community to bring HOPE, actionable solutions while equiping, inspiring and empowering today's youth, women and their families for a better.
