Mamie Till-Mobley

November 23rd marks the 100th birthday of Mamie Till-Mobley, American teacher and civil rights activist. The 1955 lynching of her 14-year-old son Emmett Till was a catalyst for the 20th century Civil Rights Movement, and her own activism was no small part of the dissemination of Emmett’s story.


About Illuminations

Illuminations is a blog devoted to shedding light on the ongoing research, preservation, and outreach activities involving the unique materials held by the Special Collections & Archives Division (SCA) of the Florida State University Libraries. This blog highlights how FSU SCA supports active learning and engagement, as well as provides a behind the scenes peek into the day to day activities of our librarians and archivists. Posts are written from different perspectives, both student and professional, and provide insights into our collections and the work necessary to make them accessible to all, both in the present and for decades to come.
