This past summer we had the privilege to host Barefoot Workshops thanks to grant from the Institute for Museum and Library Services. As part of the grant we hired five new interns and trained our staff, volunteers and community members on how to create photo-documentaries.
We will be showing these great videos along with other films this fall online and in-person every thursday at 6:00pm starting September 9th until November 10th. These photo stories tell the story of West-Tallahatchie County. We hope that you will share and come in-person to see these stories and other films.
Next summer our high school interns will continue this project by creating their own photo stories. If you want to support this project be sure and donate on our new website emmett-till.org
