Evicted Sharecroppers

Parkin (vicinity), Arkansas. The families of evicted sharecroppers of the Dibble plantation. They were legally evicted the week of January 12, 1936. The plantation having charged that by membership in the Southern Tenant Farmers' Union they were engaging in a conspiracy to retain their homes. This contention granted by the court, the eviction, though at the point of a gun, was quite legal. The pictures were taken just after the evictions before they were moved into the tent colony they later enjoyed
