Summary "Historians of race, gender, and class will join agricultural historians in valuing this careful examination of an understudied development in a corner of the Jim Crow South. Photographs taken by agents as well as others commissioned by the USDA add a dramatic visual record of the challenges and successes of employees and constituents of the Texas Agricultural Extension Service's Negro Division." -- Jacket
