"Cotton Tenants by Janes Agee & Walker Evans"

Carter Presidential Library & Museum Theater
Free and Open to the Public
"Cotton Tenants" is a re-discovered masterpiece of reporting by a literary icon and a celebrated photographer. Published for the first time, Agee’s original report — accompanied by thirty of Walker Evans’ historic photos, some never before published — is an unsparing record of place and of three families who worked the land at a desperate time. Editor John Summers and Hugh Davis will discuss the work.
