Title:Segregated water buckets among construction workers, Washington D.C., June 7, 1941
Date:1941 June 7
Description:

Text on reverse: "Photo from Afro-America; Should you go to work on some construction job, you may find separate drinking buckets provided for whites and non-whites. Sometimes the buckets are labeled, as on this job in Washington, D.C. Sometimes they are not. If you wish to avoid trouble in the latter situation, either wait and see which race uses which bucket, or ask the foreman." Stetson Kennedy (1916-2011), writer and civil rights activist, collected these photographs during the course of his career fighting for equality throughout the Southern United States.
