Whitfield Foundation will be sponsoring a fundraiser for the construction of a
national sharecropper’s museum and library inspired by all sharecroppers that
suffered through the evictions, and the 1939 Cropperville camp settlement of sharecroppers
near Harviell, Missouri. Under the encouraging leadership of Reverend Owen H.
Whitfield, this land was purchased by the St. Louis Community for the
rehabilitation of Sharecroppers; this area was established as a refuge for
needy dispossessed evicted sharecroppers. This community came to serve as a
model of democracy in action and it gain active cooperation of each resident.
Their desire was to promote good will and understanding in the territory
surrounding their new community. This area was 99.88 acres or more in Butler
County, on County Road 488 near Harviell, Missouri. "OH
