"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."
"In 2015, ETP launched in collaboration with the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture for the 60th anniversary of this landmark moment in American history. ETP continues to be curated independently as an aggregate for unpacking this historical case and highlighting its connection with contemporary inequalities concerning the racial criminalization of Black youth in America.
Through this project, we aim to create an interdisciplinary approach to explore Till’s murder, case, and legacy through podcasts, literature, digital archival materials, film and programming. Curatorially, we want to map and amplify the circulation of Till’s story within our collective memory. This is achieved through generating original content, alongside strengthening public access to the wide-range of related research and creative materials for all to easily engage and explore. "

"The Murder of Emmett Till Interviews Collection is made up of 40 raw interviews from the award-winning 2003 American Experience documentary, The Murder of Emmett Till. The film, which chronicles the story of Emmett Till, a 14-year-old who was murdered in 1955 after being accused of whistling at a white woman, follows Till's life and transformation into an icon of the Civil Rights Movement. The Murder of Emmett Till interviews paint a picture of the Jim Crow South, the Mississippi community in which the murder took place, and contain intimate recollections by those who knew Emmett Till. Guests include family and friends of Emmett Till, including Mamie Till Mobley, Emmett Till's mother and Civil Rights activist; and Wheeler Parker, Emmett Till's cousin; as well as journalists, politicians, and witnesses, like Ernest Withers, a photographer known for his photos of the segregated South; Willie Reed, a witness who testified against Emmett Till's murderers; and David Jordan, a Senator from Mississippi. Topics include segregation, Jim Crow, lynching and violence, the American judicial system, journalism, the American South, and the Civil Rights Movement."
