Emmet Till Marker Vandalized Again In Money

MONEY, MS (Ben Caxton) — A Mississippi Freedom Trail marker dedicated to Emmett Till has been vandalized twice in the past two months. The historical marker is located outside a grocery store in Money where the 14-year-old was accused of whistling at a white woman while visiting his family. In May, someone scratched the marker and over the weekend another vandal peeled off the back, which featured photos of Till. Last year a marker at the site of the teen’s death was found riddled with bullet holes. The civil rights marker outside the former grocery store was erected in 2011; it will be removed this week for repairs, which are estimated to cost around $500.
