I've never done it before although my mom said when she was younger our family in SC used to have her picking cotton.

there is absolutely nothing wrong with picking cotton, especially for yourself, for a paid wage

rather than unpaid under the whip in slavery ... even then the shame belonged to the slave owners not the workers

no shame in work

I absolutely believe and know blacks to sometimes pick cotton in southern states, but they are definitely getting paid wages for their hard days work. Now.... babies tied to their back-----> I dont know about all of that.

Maybe it is their family farm?
Tying babies to your back is common in many parts of the world especially Africa. Maybe she saw some migrants??

I guarantee you it's true. My family has acres with people picking cotton and farming plantation style. It's very common in the black belt region.
