Emmett Till Mississippi civil rights memorial vandalised for second time in two monthsAn sign marking the site where black teenager was accused of whistling at a white woman – something that would subsequently result in him being lynched – has been vandalised for the second time in two months. The marker on the Mississippi Freedom Trail was damaged last month when someone scratched on it. Allan Hammons, whose company manages the Mississippi Freedom Trail, more than a dozen signs established in 2011 to mark seminal moments and locations in the civil rights movements, said the incident was deeply disturbing.
