        A Black Man Entering a Movie Theatre's 'Colored' Entrance | African-American History

        UNITED STATES - October 1939: An African American going into a cinema's back entrance, Belzoni, Mississippi. America's black people were subject to an apartheid system which meant they were kept separate from the more privileged whites. Photograph taken by Marion Post Walcott when working for the Farm Security Administration (FSA) as part of Roosevelt's New Deal. The FSA produced some of the most remarkable social documentary photographs of the 20th century in their attempt to produce an encyclopaedic record of American life between 1935 and 1944.
