It was announced yesterday that Emmett Till’s childhood Chicago home will be one of 33 sites to receive a portion of $3 million in a grant from the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
The African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund will restore 33 historical sites & organizations that are pivotal pieces of African American history — including the Chicago (IL) house of Emmett Till’s mother! These places deserve to be preserved! https://t.co/TdVpMjAz5m
