March 21st, 2015 a great event to re-open the Tallahatchie Courtroom was held. The Thacker Mountain Radio program was broadcast live from the Courtroom with the featured guest Author Alysia Burton Steele and Music by Dorothy Moore and The Tutwiler Community Center Student Blues Band. County officials and Members of the Emmett Till Memorial Commission were recognized and Senator Thad Cochran spoke. We feel very privileged to be a part of this wonderful restoration project.
