A pastoral, sun-drenched Mississippi cotton field turns out to be where Emmett Till was murdered. A tranquil suburban subdivision was the site of untold suffering in 1838, when Cherokee Indians had to endure a brutal winter as the government forced them westward on the Trail of Tears. Photographer Andrew Lichtenstein has said that ‘acknowledgment is the first step towards healing. I was especially struck by the photograph of beautiful cotton plants taken near the place Emmett Till was abducted - the essays demonstrate the close connection between slavery and cotton and all the horrors that followed from that association.

Roy Fox Lichtenstein (/ˈlɪktənˌstaɪn/; October 27, 1923 – September 29, 1997) was an American pop artist. During the 1960s, along with Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns, and James Rosenquist among others, he became a leading figure in the new art movement. His work defined the premise of pop art through parody. Inspired by the comic strip, Lichtenstein produced precise compositions that documented while they parodied, often in a tongue-in-cheek manner

From its beginnings, American Cotton Growers strove toward ever more effective processing and marketing of the cotton grown on the High Plains. The men who were the driving force behind ACG realized what enormous benefits were possible if the cotton that was grown here and ginned here could also be processed, spun, and woven into fabric before it was shipped elsewhere. Transforming their vision into the construction and successful operation of a denim mill was an enormous gamble. Only with the mutual support, respect, and sheer stick-to-itiveness of ACG members, bankers, and Levi Strauss & Co. would this venture pan out—as indeed it did. Eventually comprising not only the successful denim mill but also 27 participating gin communities, the organization proved a venerable pioneer in agribusiness.Since the early 1900s, cotton has shaped the economy and growth of the Texas High Plains. Against the backdrop of the burgeoning West Texas cotton industry, Field to Fabric details the workings of its most vigorous proponent. Woven like the sturdy denim they produced are the expectations, strategies, and interactions of men who could see the future. Yet not even the organization’s visionaries could anticipate how widespread their influence would be—that the entire cotton industry would feel their impact. The efforts of those who founded and nurtured ACG led to industry acceptance of high-volume-instrumentation classification and utilization of open-end spinning for short-staple cotton.Through the reflections of the builders and supporters of ACG, Field to Fabric conveys the vitality that forged this successful West Texas enterprise, and the trials and tribulations to which it refused to succumb.
