"Mills' book is worth reading, not only because it is well written and thoroughly researched, but also because it describes the life of a person who would rank in the top 10 of the most important and essential Mississippians of the last 50 years." --Jackson Free Press

“A solid addition for biography, civil rights, and African American studies collections in public and academic libraries.”—Michael Rogers, Library Journal

"Fifteen years after the book’s initial release, this edition of This Little Light of Mine continues to solidify its stance as a worthy contribution to the canon of civil rights-era historical scholarship. Mills’s book stands as essential reading for anyone interested in the inner-workings of the civil rights movement." --Wesley Tyler French, Journal of Mississippi History
