Jack Delano, a photographer, took photos of two schools in the same county for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in October 1941. The one featured was taken in a school designated for African-American children in Veazy, Georgia. The other photo, "Classroom in a School," featured a white-only school in Siloam, Georgia.
- Compare and contrast the following photographs, “Classroom in the School” and “The One-Teacher Negro School in Veazy.”
- Based on these two images, how were the opportunities in education unequal for these school children?
