Abstract:

This presentation will discuss their efforts to support their communities during the turbulent economic period of the 1930s. Already crippled by racism and "Jim crow", as unemployment rates skyrocketed, the African American community was devastated by the effects of poverty and decay. The only opportunities were for black women in low wage paying jobs. To black women, this meant it was up to them to continue to support their communities in ways they always had but with added urgency. It also meant rising up and defending their community through social activism.
