Separate, But Equal: The Mississippi Photographs of Henry Clay Anderson by Henry Clay Anderson (review)

Henry Clay Anderson photographed the African Americans of Greenville, a majority-black town on the banks of the Mississippi River and at the edge of the Mississippi Delta, for close to forty years. His life’s work is presented for the first time in Separate, But Equal. Greenville was thoroughly segregated throughout most of Anderson’s career, and his photographs open the door to a world that precious few whites have ever seen and many blacks have forgotten.
