Linda Williams Jackson Book Event

Over fifty people attended the book event featuring Delta native Linda Williams Jackson. Her new book, Midnight Without A Moon, aimed at middle school audiences, offers an unflinching bird’s eye view of 1955 Mississippi from the perspective of young Rose Lee. “Rose has one foot steeped in the segregated South and other in the new world where Negroes and girls are expecting more, doing more, and willing to risk all to live lives of their own choosing.” – Sharon Flake, Coretta Scott King Award winning author of Unstoppable Octobia May and The Skin I’m In.
