After a moving church service at Mt. Beulah Baptist (during which two #OUDC22 students spoke beautifully), Class 22 was treated to a delicious lunch at the home of Indianola Mayor Steve Rosenthal (right), who shared his efforts to improve education in Indianola, as well as his experience as a Jewish person in the Mississippi Delta.
