James Agee still seems to be relevant when we see a large number of students of the other races finding it difficult to meet resources to get an education. This is against the achievements of the colored people which they got during the 1960s.Both Walker Evans and James Agee have stressed on changes in fundamental attitudes of people. They deal with the subject with an unusual approach and depict the very ‘soul’ of the suffering humanity. They reject the status quo values of the society and want a new way of addressing the social issues of life. This amalgamation of a photographer and an author, literally as well as symbolically, depicted the precarious and agonizing situation recurring in the society.The work led President Roosevelt to formulate a new Law in favor of tenants after the President’s re-election for the second term. The work, Let Us Now Praise Famous Men, impressed people as well as the President and the distressed people of the society got their rights. Same kind of innovative literary and artistic works are required to bring even more reforms in the society so as to make education of all kinds accessible to all in equal terms. Agee’s delineation of the tenant depression and Walker’s photographs of the families made it clear before the public that everything was not right in the country, and America needed reformation process. Agee wrote carefully at different social issues; for example, he did not criticize the laws and schools which children attended sporadically.
