  • The museum is across the road from the courthouse where Emmett Till’s murderers were acquitted. It’s still disturbing to see the site where such injustice was done.

  • Very interesting. Lots of info. Curator was very knowledgeable.
  • We were so impressed with the two young people working at the center. They were so knowledgeable regarding the events of 1955 and eager to share. Standing in the courtroom was a moving experience and we were so thankful to have this experience. Do not miss this if you find yourself in the delta.
