Oh Freedom After While [electronic resource]

One morning in 1939 residents of southeastern Missouri awoke to a startling sight. More than 1,000 African-American sharecroppers had camped out alongside two state highways, taking a stand against the corrupt planters and marginalizing government decrees that made it impossible for them to ever escape economic disparity. Narrated by Julian Bond, this film tells the story of their labor strike, mixing commentary from former sharecroppers and scholars with striking archival footage. Despite the odds, the 1939 Sharecroppers' Strike attracted national attention and changed government policies that had previously condemned rural blacks to an endless cycle of poverty.
