During economic crises, marginalized communities are more susceptible to the harms and struggle that come with these downturns. Today we'll talk about the GreatDepression, which lasted from 1929 until the US entered World War II. This depression profoundly changed the US economy, and we'll focus on how the depression impacted Black Americans.
