Committed to Creating a Legacy Of Hope, offering programming that equip, inspire & empower youth, women and their families for the future.
The Emmett Till Legacy Foundation (ETLF) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, committed to “creating a legacy of hope” offering programming, opportunities and scholarships that equip, inspire and empower youth, women and their families for a better future.
Founded in 2005, in Stone Mountain, Georgia, and operating out of Minneapolis, Minnesota, ETLF dedicates its on-going efforts to turn the painful part of our history into a positive future, by helping our youth and others reach their fullest potential – something Emmett did not have a chance to do.
Emmett Till's untimely death at the age of 14 (August 28, 1955), his mothers choice for an open casket funeral and the acquittal of the confessed murders sparked the Civil Rights movement. Let's join together and not let his death be in vain. WE MUST NEVER FORGET!
Our mission in the words of Mamie Till Mobley... "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 life's Richter scale, they must be anchored so deeply that, though they sway, they will not topple" Mamie Till Mobley mother of Emmett Louis Till.
