Mamie Till-Mobley Memorial Scholarship

Mamie Till-Mobley, the mother of Emmett Till and tireless advocate for social justice, is arguably Argo High School’s most influential graduate. She rose to fame with her brave decision to hold an open-casket funeral following the brutal lynching of her son while he was on summer break in Mississippi in 1955. Mamie famously stated that she wanted the world to see what had happened to her son, sparking the Civil Rights Movement and bringing lynching to the forefront of social conversation.

 

She was the first Black student to make the A Honor Roll and the fourth Black student to graduate from Argo High School. Following Emmett’s murder in 1955, Mamie fought for justice for her son while pursuing her degree in education. As a teacher, Mamie continued her social justice advocacy, working with children in and out of the classroom until her death in 2003 at the age of 81.
