Delta Blues Odyssey . . . Oddments and Miscellaneous, Part 3

We did not intentionally seek out the sites on this post. However, as we travelled the backroads of the Delta, we kept running across places pertaining to Emmett Till. I feel it is important not to shield the young from such realities. They need to know that evil is out there. So, Little Jailhouse Gumbo got a lesson about the depravities people can commit on one another. I won't go into the specifics. Follow the links posted if you want to learn more. It is not a story that gives one faith in our fellow man.
