Summary "In January 1939, Missouri Bootheel sharecroppers--black and white--staged a dramatic roadside protest to protest unjust treatment by local plantation owners. Their demonstration spurred the U.S. government to develop new housing for displaced sharecroppers. Some demonstrators also established a remarkable farming community--and learned how to make lasting change in their lives"--Original container
