Shadows of Emmett Till (SOET) - A Photo Book

The Mississippi Delta is a place that defines America and Americans like no other part of the country ā€“ a culture entwined with slavery, poverty, and political and economic oppression.

Shadows of Emmett Till includes current and archival images. It seeks to probe that complex past: interrogating the whiteness that has always held power in its grip in a place that is predominantly Black, at a time when white America may be starting to finally come to terms with the sins of its past. Along the way, the past has spilled into the present, with parallels to George Floyd and so many others.
