SHARECROP will screen March 15 at the 2018 National Council for Black Studies conference in Atlanta
Claudia Stack’s new film, SHARECROP (CLICK for film trailer and to arrange theater/campus/community screenings) showcases the experience of ten individuals who were involved in sharecropping during the segregation era. Sometimes called “the forgotten farmers”, sharecroppers were vital to agricultural production prior to widespread farm mechanization.
“SHARECROP is one of only a few documentaries that effectively capture the authentic contemporary voice of sharecroppers.” – Dr. C Sade Turnipseed. Asst. Professor of History, MVSU & Cotton Pickers of America Historic Monument Project
Featuring rare archival footage and many period images, the film conveys what life was really like for cotton sharecroppers in the Mississippi Delta, tobacco sharecroppers in the Carolinas, and others. SHARECROP explores their lives, the way they worked, and celebrates the resilience of the South’s forgotten farmers. SHARECROP DELTA COTTON is a short film that focuses just on the experience of sharecropping in the Mississippi Delta. Both films was made possible by the generous support of the Middle Road Foundation.
