THE MOST SOUTHERN PLACE ON EARTH

The Mississippi Delta, also known as the Yazoo­Mississippi Delta, is the distinctive northwest section of the U.S. state of Mississippi (and portions of Arkansas and Louisiana) which lies between the Mississippi and Yazoo Rivers. The region has been called "The Most Southern Place on Earth" "Southern" in the sense of "characteristic of its region, the American South"), because of its unique racial, cultural, and economic history.
