The Great Depression

What is the Great Depression? The Great Depression is a economy situation that happened in 1929 to 1939. The Great Depression began soon after stock markets crashed which everyone was getting hired or many people didn't have jobs which wiped millions of visitors. Everyone was desperate for a job or to get money. Many people found ways to get money so they can have money to buy there food and supplies. The Great Depression affected the characters in the book Roll of thunder because during that period of time their was rascism and it was harder for native Americans.

Abolishment of slavery

Lynching is kill (someone), especially by hanging, for an alleged offense with or without a legal trial. Which started they were most frequent from 1890 to the 1920s, with a peak in 1892. A direct quotation from the book is “there aren’t enough of those same white people who would admit how they feel, or even if they did, would hang a white man for killing a black one. It’s as simple as that.” In the Roll of Thunder many people could be lynched if they didn't follow the rules or even by talking to a white person disrespect fully. (
