Wade, Robert M.


This book is an oral history account of an African-American family who survived the harsh conditions of sharecropping and being farm hands in the cotton fields during the 1940s through the 1970s in the South. Though some of the memories are dimmed by time, the brothers and sisters telling their stories give accounts of the hardship they endured while growing up as children in the cotton fields in the South to the best of their recollection. It is told through the eyes of thirteen of the fourteen children who started work at six or seven years old chopping cotton for $1.50 per day, working from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. They tell what it was like to pick cotton from can’t see to can’t see” for two cents a pound, and how they took pride in who could pick the most because it was an honest day’s work.Wade, Robert M. is the author of 'Surviving King Cotton: Cotton Pickin Po', published 2007 under ISBN 9781424184637 and ISBN 1424184630.
