Thought for the day

"It is incredible that this must be said, but the obvious seems to escape politicized academics, so we must state the obvious: Genocide is deliberate; it is premeditated.

In these poignant photographs, FSA photographers Dorothea Lang, Ben Shahan, and Russell Lee capture the intense anxiety and stagnation of poor farm laborers as they wait in line for emergency aids that will feed their families for days.

 

The Farm Security Administration (FSA), created in 1937 under the Department of Agriculture, helped with rural resettlement, agricultural credit, and subsistence homestead programs.

 

 

The FSA was not a relief agency, but instead, it relied on a network of collaborations between state and county offices to determine which customers needed loans that could not get this credit elsewhere. .
