The Jewel of the Delta

In May of 2017, I had the opportunity to speak with Mississippi’s Eleventh Circuit Court District Judge Linda F. Coleman about The Jewel of the Delta, a children’s book about the history of Mound Bayou, Miss. by Mr. Floyd Stokes.  Stokes, who is a native of Mound Bayou himself, tells the unique and prevailing history of a small Mississippi Delta town in his book. His writing, combined with Sheena Hisiro’s beautiful illustrations, share a slice of both Mississippi history and American history.
