National Youth Administration, State Office, 1 S. 4th St., Columbus, Ohio


A black and white National Youth Administration photograph of two African Americans males assembling a wooden podium. They are wearing coveralls. One man is squatting at the left of the image and is putting a screw into the podium. The man standing on the opposite side of the podium is holding it for support. Behind them can be seen a blackboard on the wall. On the back of the image is the stamp of the NYA. Mary McLeod Bethune was the Director of Negro Affairs for the NYA during the 1940s, and most likely acquired this photograph during her time as an NYA agent.


ca. 1940
