John L. Handcox (1904-1992) was a Great Depression-era tenant farmer and union advocate from Arkansas renowned for his politically charged songs and poetry.

In 1935, Handcox joined the Southern Tenant Farmers Union and began writing songs and poetry to rally the group's members. Two years later, Charles Seeger and Sidney Robertson recorded him for the Library of Congress. His songs were later promoted by fellow protest songsters, Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie, and Joe Glazer….
