Caption
Tamio Wakayama took this SNCC photo soon after entering the Mississippi delta in the summer of 1964. I took the picture,' he said, 'because there was this panorama of a wide road, a flat field of cotton, now shorn of its crop, and this tree beside a sharecropper's shack. Looking through the lens, it felt like the sharecropper's shack and the outhouse seemed to have grown out of the black soil, because there was a beautiful harmony in this view. And that was the beginning for me of a long love affair with that land and its people, the black belt of the South.'
