GLENDORA, Miss. Sep 20, 2006 — Photographs that captured a mother’s grief and Emmett Till‘s mutilated body were on display as this tiny Mississippi Delta town opened a museum honoring the slain black teenager whose death was pivotal in the civil rights movement.
Among the items on display are family snapshots and a picture of Till‘s mutilated body that stunned the nation after the 14-year-old Chicago boy was brutally murdered in 1955, allegedly in retaliation for whistling at a white woman.
