Impoverished African American Children

Impoverished African American Children | Photograph | Wisconsin Historical Society
Five impoverished and disheveled-looking African American children sitting on the ground near their home. Original caption reads: "These five little Negro children show the conditions under which most southern children are brought up. When asked what they were eating they replied 'ground peas' (peanuts). They are not near enough to a Negro school to have the chance of an education so are being raised in ignorance and abject poverty."
