These remarkable color photographs were taken for the Farm Security Administration between 1939 and 1941. They depict African American tenant farmers and their families living in the rural South during World War II. Despite the efforts of the Southern Tenant Farmers Union (STFU), living conditions were often deplorable.

    I have really learned result-oriented things via your weblog. One other thing I’d prefer to say is newer computer system operating systems are inclined to allow much more memory to be used, but they as well demand more ram simply to run. If a person’s computer cannot handle much more memory plus the newest computer software requires that storage increase, it is usually the time to shop for a new Laptop or computer. Thanks
