Emmett Till Sign will be Replaced

A center dedicated to the memory of slain black teen Emmett Till has raised over $20,000 to replace a sign commemorating the 1955 killing that helped propel the Civil Rights movement.
The sign has been the target of repeated vandals, the most recent being substantial damage with bullet holes.
The Emmett Till Interpretive Center raised 10 times the amount it will cost to replace the sign.
Extra donations will be used to commemorate Till in other ways.
