Title:Mother and child on cotton farm

Text on reverse: "Let 'em eat cotton! is the by-word of the big plantation owners who insist that their tenants and sharecroppers plant cotton 'up to the doorstep' (leaving no plot to grow foodstuffs)." 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.
