The original Emmett Till exhibit developed from an oral history project conducted by Dr. Henry Outlaw, pictured here, with one of the original panels. The MS Humanities Council sponsored the oral history project and the first exhibit. With the popularity of the original exhibit, the traveling exhibit was developed by Laura Fleeman Walker (Graphic Designer and Brand Manager for Delta State University) and Emily Jones (University Archivist) with Dr. Outlaw’s editorial assistance. It is with great appreciation that we recognize the contributions of Dr. Henry Outlaw, Gerald Chatham, Robert Smith, Franklin R. Chamblin and Wheeler Parker and the Mississippi Humanities Council for their continued support of the traveling exhibit.
