Sun Slipping Down

Reverend and Mrs. Landers, Hughes, AR, 1969

For the last forty years as visitor, social worker and reporter Eugene Richards has been coming to the Arkansas Delta. The result of this deep relationship is his soulful book ‘A Red Ball of a Sun Slipping Down’.

It’s a timely reminder in these post Ferguson times of how the legacy of racism and slavery are still present in certain corners of America
