Summary
This Prelinger Archives film visits poor areas of the United States, particularly hard-hit agricultural areas, and discusses social and economic programs encompassed by the "War on Poverty." Viewers encounter struggling farmers who share their perspectives on how and why poverty is so common among their communities, what they can and can't do about it, and what their hopes for the future are. The film also includes commentary from community activists and economic development experts, with a brief case study of a cooperative sorghum mill that provides supplemental income. The plight of hungry school children is explored through moving images and discussions of the importance of school meal programs.
