This tiny school house is full of not only Tina Turner memorabilia, but history of black children's lives and education of the 60's. Very well displayed, this restored one room school house is a must for any traveler.

We stopped here on our way to Memphis. The school is small, but full of memorabilia and history. Free to go in. A visitor center is right next to it and also has stuff in it. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable.
