Picturing Rural Segregation in Louisiana During the Great Depression

Abstract:

This paper explores the documentary photographs of African American sharecroppers on the Alma Plantation of False River, in Point Coupee Parish, Louisiana. Taken by Alan Lomax, the acclaimed ethnographer who recorded Leadbelly and Muddy Waters during the New Deal, the photos offer a glimpse into African American struggle for humanity on a sugar plantation in 1934. However, the sympathetic white and northern perspective shows African American resistance hiding in plain sight. In the course of validating African American survival and resistance in the face of the ravages of rural segregation, Lomax’s photos forecast the steep climb that the 1960s NAACP and CORE generations would have to make in their post-World War II civil rights movement.
