Little, the first African-American President of the Tallahatchie County Board of Supervisors. In 2006, Little organized the Emmett Till Memorial Commission, and over eight years, the organization worked across racial lines to restore the Sumner Courthouse back to the way it looked in 1955. Today, the Emmett Till Interpretive Center exists to tell the story of the Emmett Till tragedy and point a way towards racial healing. The day trip will feature a visit to Sumner, Mississippi for a tour of the Emmett Till Interpretive Center and a visit to Bryant’s Grocery in Money, MS. The deadline for registration is Friday, January 27th.
