Civil Rights Trail has many stops in Delta

Civil Rights Trail

The U.S. Civil Rights Trail stops in 15 states, few as chilling as Mississippi. 

Just driving along the miles of Delta cotton fields and levees, you might imagine the inhumane conditions suffered by enslaved or mistreated workers imported from many continents to hold back the mighty Mississippi River and clear the dense jungle for agriculture.

From the grisly 1955 torture and murder of 14-year-old Emmett Till in Money to the statue and memorial to Fannie Lou Hamer in Ruleville, you’ll appreciate the sparks of freedom that started in the land where the horizon reveals no hills and, for many decades, no hope.
