Thread Name: Origins: Pick a Bale of Cotton
Subject: RE: Pick a Bale of Cotton.
I read how you feel about it Azizi. I understand your position. That is one of the reasons I'd like to know more. I guess Leadbelly didn't see the song as a symbol of slavery. In fact here in the south I find folks, both black and white, associate picking cotton with work you do when you can't find anything else.
