As many lost their jobs, they took part in their churches, seeking help.
The upper class didn’t face as much troubles during the Depression didn’t take much part in their churches during this time because many of the poor were seeking help through the church.
Church members often invited their ministers and their families to meals since the ministers were paid very little or no money at all.
The church was a center of events and gatherings where people met others and shared stories.
Small towns would often have many churches on each corner, each representing the variety of religious views and beliefs in the town.
African Americans were constantly discriminated against.
They had separate public services.
Many left school at an early age to work.
African Americans could not register to vote.

The Ku Klux Klan is a racist, type of movement with a commitment to extreme violence.

The Klan remains the one with the greatest number of national and local organizations around the country

First, they focused its anger and violence on African Americans, on white Americans that stood up for them, and against the federal government which supported their rights.

After extended social change added more categories to its enemies list.

Such as, Jews, Catholics (less after the 1970s), homosexuals, and different groups of immigrants. New Deals
 The New Deal was a defining moment in American history.
 The New deal was unique because it came at the time of an economic collapse.
 The government needed to provide a stable budget to help the economy resume.
 They had never before had so much change in the legislation policy.
 To help the country out of hard times they altered the American social and economic policy forever. "New Deal."Dictionary of American History. 2003. Encyclopedia.com. 20 Mar. 2012 <http://www.encyclopedia.com>. To Kill A Mockingbird The white race seemed to deem themselves the dominant race of our country. A major discussion was that our Constitution was colorblind. Meaning that only white men were meant to be equal. According to the Constitution, all men are created equal, but in this time they were not. The thin disguise of "equal" accommadations did not mislead anyone. Homer Adolph Piessy, an African American, had boarded a " white only" car on a train in New Orleans. Homer was arrested when he refused to leave. He supposedly violated the " Jim Crow Car Act of 1890" . http://www.cbc.ca/quirks/segregation.jpg Seperate ammenaties for the colored and the white. http://www.obsessedwithfilm.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/07/brown_image.jpg Segregation not only effected colored men and women, segregation effected families. Colored children were'nt aloud to go to the same school as white children. This caused colored children to not recieve as well of an education. by Jill Kleinkauf, Madison Olsen, Brittney Rosillo, Stephanie Pindiak, Maylie Gonzales, Dianna Torres, and Nicole Bowman
Period 7 Research Project The Dustbowl was a period in time where there were drastic measurements for the farmers and their lands. The farmers came to the Southern Plains of Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas dreaming of prosperity. Instead, they had to live through ten years of drought, dust, disease and death. The dustbowl started around 1930 and ended in 1936. In some areas, it is said to have ended in the 1940’s. There was a number of dust storms increasing rapidly. When Franklin took office everyone was desperate for help. He came up with the Emergency Banking Act of 1933. During the Dust bowl, many cattle and other animals were killed just to make money for other food supplies. http://www.kansashistory.us/dustbowl.html http://spydersden.wordpress.com/2011/03/22/the-great-dust-bowl/ http://us.history.wisc.edu/hist102/photos/assets/photos/1100.jpg http://lcweb2.loc.gov/ammem/wpaintro/women.html http://library.thinkquest.org/12111/mculley.html http://library.thinkquest.org/12111/girl.html http://www.livinghistoryfarm.org/farminginthe30s/life_24.html http://xroads.virginia.edu/~ug02/newyorker/religion.html The End http://www.biography.com/people/harper-lee-9377021 http://stevensonblog.blogs.tuscaloosanews.com/13637/harper-lee-and-the-legal-profession http://eca.state.gov/forum/vols/vol44/no3/p39.htm The stock market crashed on October 29, 1929. It set in motion a series of events that led to the Great Depression, but, the American and global economy had been in turmoil six months prior to Black Tuesday. At the highest point during the Great Depression, unemployment rates reached 25% in 1933. The Great Depression began in 1929 and ended in 1941 when America prepared for World War 2. After the stock market crash, in 1929, it took about 27 years to reach pre cash levels. Tuesday, October 29, 1929, is known as Black Tuesday because of the plunge of the stock market. It largely symbolizes the start of the Great Depression, even though the economy had declined six months prior. www.thegreatdepressioncauses.com/timelines http://www.babylontoday.com/34e2c760.jpg -Harper Lee was born on April 28, 1926 in Monroeville, Alabama, and was a descendant of Robert E.
