SIGNS

Special | 3m 43s Video has closed captioning.

A short documentary about the continued vandalism of the signs commemorating Emmett Till’s death after they were put up in 2007. These signs, erected by the Emmett Till Memorial Commission, have been repeatedly riddled with bullets and then repaired, only to be defaced once again. SIGNS examines these issues and the Memorial Commission’s ongoing efforts to repair these important landmarks.
