Summit's very own Rev. Wheeler Parker and Trustee Dr. Marvel Parker were honored at the White House by President Joe Biden last week for the signing of the proclamation to establish the Emmett Till and Mamie Till-Mobley National Monument in Illinois and Mississippi.
Rev. Wheeler Parker is the cousin of Emmett Till and the last remaining individual living to be present the night Till was taken.
