Sharecroppers Harvest Cotton Ca. 1920s

Unknown - 1920
Rate this:
Following the Civil War, many former slaves worked as sharecroppers, renting a small portion of a cotton plantation and cultivating the land in exchange for a percentage of the crop. While sharecropping allowed blacks marginally more independence than they had had as slaves, a significant percentage became deeply indebted to their landlords and lived in poverty.
