Strid collection has beautiful images that reflect the daily life of young African- American children passing time, playing,
getting their lesson, and napping. Such children images were taken while Strid was traveling or on special assignment.
One such assignment was to capture those families during the 1950s and 1960s for Aid to Dependent Children. These photos
were taken between during April and May, in Memphis, Tennessee at a housing center.

"Two youngsters, living in a downtown housing project was leaning on the rail of the steps to the upper level. Their faces
and expressions intrigued me." (Above photo)
