Great Depression Collage (link)
This collage depicts the suffering of families during the 1930’s, after the stock market crashed on October 29, 1929, also known as Black Tuesday, producing a decade-long faltered economy. Many families had lost their homes and their jobs- the men wandered the streets in search for food and money, while the mothers stayed with their children to take care of all they had left. The Great Depression was an event of our nation’s history that no one can truly forget because of the impact it had on hundreds of thousands of individual lives. Even after all the protests and attempted reform programs like the New Deal, it was not until WWII that the U.S. truly got back on their feet.
