This week, President Biden declared the site of where Emmett Till's body was recovered, outside of Glendora, Mississippi, a National Monument. The site, which is called Graball Landing, is marked with a sign made by Kingston's own Lite Brite Neon.
The site marker, which is made of steel, weighs 500 pounds, and is bullet-proof, was created by Lite Brite Neon for the site after the first three signs were riddled with bullet holes. The sign was dedicated on October 19, 2019.
We are so proud of this local contribution to the historic monument and want to recognize the work of the Lite Brite Neon team. This is an important recognition of a tragic event in American history, and we appreciate their dedication to continuing to tell the story of Emmett Till.
