Farmer Zachary 

Photo and essay by Jermaine Johnson, 14


The person I am going to talk about to you is Victor W. Zachary. He is a 52-year-old African American that lives and works in the Delta. He also has a storage house he calls a rabbit box.

Mr. Zachary used to live in Memphis Tenn. He came back home to Marvell Arkansas because his mother was sick. He has an establishment of picking peas so he can make money and younger people can too.

I was inspired by Mr. Zachary because of his crops and tractors. I even took pictures of his farm.
