I have put this site together as an important source of research for anyone interested in the Emmett Till case. I hope that you will find it helpful and informative. I welcome your comments or suggestions for improvement or corrections. You can contact me at:
I respond to all inquiries. However, I do ask a few courtesies:
1. Please understand that I do get several emails, often from students, asking for help with projects. Many of these ask me to send them “any information” that I may have on the case. Please understand that I do not have time to answer vague or general questions, and cannot photocopy material and send it snail mail. I usually do not have time to scan and send attachments either, but I can make exceptions to this now and then, depending on the request.
2. It is much easier for me to respond to specific questions. I am happy to do telephone or email interviews when you have direct questions for me.
3. During January and February (Martin Luther King Jr. month, and Black History Month) I receive a very high number of requests, and it may take me a little longer to respond.
Please remember, however, that I do enjoy hearing from you and want to help where I can.
