Dr. Lois Rita Helmbold
This slide show of photographic and artistic images of Black and white working
class women during the 1930s is accompanied by comparative analysis of their
survival strategies, their experiences in the labor force, and their unpaid labor
in the home. The talk also addresses how race and class affect how women are
faring during the current recession.
