A sign dedicated to the life of Emmett Till has been vandalized in Mississippi just 35 days after being replaced, the Clarion-Ledger reports. The historical site marks the area where Till’s body was recovered in 1955.

“The Emmett Till Interpretive Center is committed to seeing the sign replaced,” co-founder Patrick Weems told the publication. “We have already begun plans to replace the sign and have notified local law enforcement about the vandalism.”

“Our mission is to continue to tell the truth as it concerns the Emmett Till story,” Weems said. “We are saddened by these events but are unwavering in our commitment to truth and racial reconciliation.”

It is so unfortunate how disrespectful some people are.
