Book Synopsis
The SHARECROP Companion Guide provides historical context and lesson plans for use with the SHARECROP documentary (Stack Stories LLC 2017). SHARECROP features oral history of ten individuals who were involved in sharecropping during the segregation era. Sometimes called the "forgotten farmers," sharecroppers were vital to American agricultural production prior to mechanized agriculture. The film and companion guide explore what life was like for cotton sharecroppers in the Mississippi Delta and Appalachia, as well as tobacco sharecroppers in the Carolinas. Support for the SHARECROP film and companion guide was provided by the Middle Road Foundation. The guide's introductory essay provides historical context for the stories, and each chapter focuses on one individual. Common Core standards alignment and lesson plans and project suggestions for grades 5 to college level are included.
