    2:45 – Except that she didn't wait for anything, she set it up. She cut the older child out since it would reduce the emotional impact that she was going for, she told the other children to turn away and lean on their mother like they're sad, and she told Florence to pose like that. It was not a candid, it was manufactured.

    Oh weird, I was just at LACMA yesterday but I get to keep learning today! Thanks for the upload!

    Migrants who came to California were called a derogatory name, some things never change. I challenge anyone to pick in the San Joaquin valley for two straight weeks, tomatoes, grapes, or whatever it will change your prospective on how hard this work is.

    Ironically, I drove right by the LACMA yesterday. Had I seen this sooner, I would have gone there instead of the Petersen Museum. Great video as always! I learn so much about history as well as art from this channel. Gary

    Great video as usual. I didn't know about the subject's Cherokee background. It adds an extra poignant layer to the story.
