A bullet-riddled sign that once marked where Emmett Till's body was pulled from the Tallahatchie River is now housed at the Till Interpretive Center in Sumner, Miss. The historic marker was taken down after three white fraternity brothers from the University of Mississippi were pictured holding guns next to the sign.
A plaque marks the gravesite of Emmett Till at Burr Oak Cemetery in Alsip, Ill. The 14-year-old was killed in Mississippi in 1955. The FBI has reopened the investigation into his lynching.
