The 70 plus photographs in this collection form an extensive pictorial record of American life between 1935 and 1944.
This U.S. government photography project was headed for most of its existence by Roy E. Stryker, who guided the effort in a succession of government agencies: the Resettlement Administration (1935-1937), the Farm Security Administration (1937-1942), and the Office of War Information (1942-1944). The collection also includes photographs acquired from other governmental and non-governmental sources, including the News Bureau at the Offices of Emergency Management (OEM), various branches of the military, and industrial corporations.
This thematic collection represents a small part of the over 17,000 photographs available from the United States Library of Congress.
Also included at the beginning of this book is the 15 minute 1937 U.S. Government Works Progress Administration film, "We Work Again." This documentary shows the employment of Negroes in Works Progress Administration (WPA) projects. It contrasts scenes of Negroes waiting in breadlines with those employed in Federal work programs such as public building construction, nursery schools and land record indexing. Shows household and health care training programs and general adult education classes. It also shows programs available for Negro artists, musicians, writers and actors. William Lawrence directs an art song group, Juanita Hall leads a spiritual choir and the Negro Theater Unit of the Federal Theater Project presents a scene from Macbeth.
