New photo of Emmett Till historical site shows grocery store building disappearing into time

Isaac Goldberg took this photo last year of the grocery store in Money, Mississippi where Emmett Till whistled at a white woman. He’s graciously given permission to publish it here. 

Thanks Isaac! It is a shame the store cannot be preserved. Each time I see photos they show this structure simply disappearing into time. But the story of this 14-year-old Chicago young man who was tortured and murdered doesn’t go away.
