This small museum about the life of Emmett Till was VERY well done and we would recommend it wholeheartedly to anyone who is interested in learning about the life of an individual of color in the 1950s and 1960s! If Civil Rights is something which interests you, this is a detour you need to make and find this museum at the end of a gravel road in Glendora, MS💯 Great job on tackling this difficult story!

We arrived here on July 4, 1919 and they opened the museum up just for my friend and I. Glendora itself is a struggling place with significant poverty but despite limitations they have done a great job with this museum which commemorates the life and death of 14 year old Emmett Till who was murdered for whistling at a white woman. He was so brutalized as to be unrecognizable but his mother insisted that his body be displayed at his funeral in Chicago so that the world could see the horrible brutality of the the apartheid system that dominated the south for centuries and which continues to haunt us today. Visit Glendora and Money and then go to Arkansas and visit Elaine Arkansas where 100 or more black sharecroppers were massacred in 1919 for having the temerity to demand market price for their cotton.

Found the museum very interesting and learned so much from the town mayor on our visit. More folks should be aware of this history in this country.

This is run by one guy, Johnny B. Thomas, mayor of Glendora, which has scant to no amenities, so adjust your expectations accordingly before you go and appreciate it for what it is: One man's devoted homage to local history, including the complex history of his own family. Take a moment to talk to the folks who run the museum for the full affect.

History buffs should visit ETIC. Sort of like dont judge a book by its cover, dont let the outside distract you! The mayor of Glendora, Johnny Thomas is there to meet and greet visitors.
