Two years ago today I created this image from Margaret Bourke-White’s famous photograph.

Even the tagline in the graphic is apropos to today. 

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

The original:

February, 1937: African American flood victims lined up to get food & clothing fr. Red Cross relief station in front of billboard extolling WORLD’S HIGHEST STANDARD OF LIVING/ THERE’S NO WAY LIKE THE AMERICAN WAY.
City: LOUISVILLE
State: KY
