Lake Providence, LA - Sharecroppers Cabin

A sharecropper’s cabin, displayed at the Louisiana State Cotton Museum, a living-history museum outside the town of Lake Providence that tells the story of the Old South’s most famous crops and the one for which the state’s Mississippi Delta region is best known. A sharecropper is a tenant farmer who pays a percentage of receipts from his crop as rent to the property owner. Photo by Carol Highsmith, 2020.
