Photos from the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum. (Not by me; I wish!)
  • A Ku Klux Klan robe. (Gallery 6, I think)
  • Glass black monuments depicting the 600 victims of lynching. (Gallery 2)
  • Mock-up of a county jail prison cell. (Gallery 5)
  • The rotunda at the heart of the circular museum. Above is the "This Little Light of Mine" sculpture. Around the walls are the faces and names of civil rights martyrs. (Gallery 3)
  • Freedom Riders, and their mug shots. (Gallery 5)
  • The doors to Bryant's Grocery, where the incident occurred that led to the torture and death of 14-year-old Emmett Till in 1955. (Gallery 4)
