EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the lively atmosphere of a square dance in rural McIntosh County, Oklahoma, during the late 1930s or early 1940s. Taken by renowned photographer Russell Lee, this image showcases the vibrant spirit and enjoyment found within American communities during that era. In this scene, couples are seen gracefully moving across the wooden floor as they engage in traditional square dancing. The colorful attire worn by both men and women adds an extra touch of charm to the photograph. It is evident that everyone present is fully immersed in the joyous occasion, their smiles reflecting their genuine happiness. Lee's lens skillfully captures not only the physical movements but also conveys a sense of unity and connection among these dancers. This snapshot serves as a reminder of simpler times when people gathered together for communal entertainment and shared moments of pure delight. Preserved by the Library of Congress' Farm Security Administration collection, this still image offers us a glimpse into America's cultural heritage during this significant period in history. As we admire this piece from Russell Lee's body of work, it allows us to appreciate how traditions like square dancing brought people together amidst challenging times - fostering camaraderie and creating lasting memories within small-town communities across our great nation.
