Emmett Till Archives

The Emmett Till Archives at Florida State University Libraries consists of primary and secondary source material related to the life, murder, and memory of Emmett Louis Till.  Florida State University Libraries partners with the Emmett Till Interpretive Center, the Emmett Till Memory Project, and other institutions and private donors to collect, preserve, and provide access to the ongoing story of Emmett Till.  The Till Archives includes newspapers, magazines, oral histories, photographs, government records, scholarly literature, creative works, and other materials documenting the Till case and its commemoration, memorialization, and discussion in scholarship and popular culture.

Materials in the Till Archives are available to the FSU community and general public upon request in the Special Collections Research Center reading room.  Access to audiovisual material may require advance notice to Special Collections staff.  Researchers can browse and download selected Till materials in the Diginole online repository.

If you have further questions about researcher and instructor access to the Till Archives, or would like to request copies of materials, please contact Special Collections & Archives staff at (850) 644-3271 or lib-specialcollections@fsu.edu.
