Its worth knowing that "The Land where the Blues Began" offers the best argument for reparations for African Americans ever presented (though that was not its intention)
Acording to Lomax, the infra structure of the Southern Economy; raildroads, levee camps, dams, earth works, roads, were all built by African Americans wheo were never justly paid for their work. Many aspects of the infra-structure are still in existance and still productive.
