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.
