Antonion Harris - Atkinson Cotton Warehouse

We all use or wear cotton, but for blacks in the south when we pass fields of cotton memories come flooding back to the days of slavery. The hot, harsh conditions picking cotton by hand from sun up to sun down with very little break and not meeting a quota meant being whipped or no food. Though they may not have happened directly to us, these stories have been passed down and the vision is ever so real. Continue reading

Either way he still owns the team. Continue reading
