U.S. Farming People Sharecropper Thanksgiving

This African American sharecropper family of six found nothing in the way of delicacies on their Thanksgiving table on Nov. 23, 1939. They were satisfied with a half gallon fruit jar of picked tomatoes and here the family is saying grace. They’re members of a group near Poplar Bluff, Mo., the remnant of the croppers who engaged in a roadside demonstration in southeast Missouri in January 1939, protesting their economic status.
