Description

For many African Americans, daily life after slavery was not much different than life in bondage. There was still a struggle for survival for many African American families. Most of the residents of Louisa County lived on farms and until Rural Electrification in the late 1940s, work was done by hand or with animal power for blacks and whites. The photograph to the left is of a Louisa County man shelling corn. The picture on the right is a woman in the same county churning butter.
