A replica of an African-American “Tent City” bedroom is displayed at Lowndes Interpretive Center, Feb. 3, 2015, in Hayneville, Ala. After the passage of the 1965 Voting Rights Act, many black tenant farmers registered to vote and were kicked off their land by the weathy, white landowners. The chamber pot at the foot of the bed kept inhabitants from having to trek to the outhouse at night. (Photo by Carmen K. Sisson/Cloudybright)
