Do You Remember?

  Back To Introduction | Share Your Memories

Almost a half-century has passed since Emmett Till was brutally murdered. For some, the memories are as fresh as yesterday. Still others, who were not alive in 1955, will never forget when they first heard of the crime.

Do you have memories about Till's murder, your first encounter with the story, incidents of racism, or the beginning of the civil rights movement?

American Experience values viewers' responses and we read all submissions. Due to volume, we regret we cannot publish every submission; we publish as many as we can which reflect proportionally the range of views. Short submissions are more likely to be published, and those with all capital submissions, less likely. All submissions are subject to editing for length and clarity.
