Anti-New Deal Cartoons from the Chicago Defender (Part III)



Here is the third of four installments of anti-New Deal cartoons by L. Rogers from the Chicago Defender, the leading black newspaper in the United States.

This one is from May 26, 1934 and compares the Agricultural Adjustment Adminstration to a"Modern Simon Legree" because of policies that drove many blacks off the land.

For the other cartoons and some background information, see here and here.
