The Wider Image: The Legacy of "King Cotton" in the American South
"KKK" and a swastika are painted on an abandoned and decaying tenant farmer's, or sharecropper's, house in Moundville, Alabama October 25, 2015. Cotton farmer Shep Morris describes the decaying tenant homes of former farm employees as "scattered throughout the cotton belt and slowly fading away." Fields along the Mississippi River Delta once gleamed white in the autumn with acre upon acre of cotton ready to be picked. This year U.S. farmers planted the fewest acres of cotton since 1983, according to U.S. Department of Agriculture data.
