A Segregated Movie Theater

An African American man ascends the stairway to the black entrance of a segregated movie theater in Belzoni, Mississippi. A "White Men Only" restroom can be seen on the ground level of the building. This photograph, by Marion Post Wolcott, was probably made in October 1939, and is part of the Farm Security Administration/Office of War Information Photograph Collection at the Library of Congress.
