What is sharecropping?
Hi!My name is Barbra,and I am a sharecropper.As a former slave,I thought when I was freed I would live a perfect happy life.However,that's not seem to be the case.What do I mean?Come find out......
Well what is sharecropping?Sharecropping is a system in which a farmer farms on land which is owned by a land owner and gets a fraction of the crop during harvest time. Isn't that just great?
Well what's the problem you might ask?The thing is we don't own our own seeds,animals,or equipment,so land owners have to provide all of of this for us,as well as,a place to live.Well this isn't free of course.By the time we pay off all of our expenses,we have little to none for ourselves.See,now that you understand sharecroppers' situation,you realize the free life isn't the perfect life.
