THE NEW YORK TIMES
“Who we are and who we become is so beautifully tied to where we are from. From the Mississippi Delta is such a powerful autobiographical journey of how Dr. Endesha Ida Mae Holland blossomed into her purpose, identity, and power as a Black woman from her experiences in her hometown and the people around her.”
