What was life like for African-Americans in the South in the 1930's?
There was an abundance of racism and segregation. If an
African-American was lucky enough to go to school, they were forced
to write their race on everything even on the inside of books.
Black families weren't wealthy. They could barely afford to put
food on the table every night, better yet buy shoes for their
children and themselves.
well borack Obama is a African American
Life in the 1930's were tough for both black and white people. Mainly black people though, that was when they went through the great depression...
A sailor's life was difficult in the 1930s. Sailors often worked very long hours and had little to do for entertainment. The food was usually horrible and the work was backbreaking.
The 1930s was the Great Depression. Jobs were hard to find. Food was scarce because of the dustbowl. Banks were unstable.
It was a terrible decade with the dust bowl and the great depression.
Hard and under payed.
it wasn't great
they were thought of as a house wife only cooking and cleaning
I was not very good due to segregation
It was very hard at times but people still got through.
life was hard for a southern black man.He had to work really hard to keep his family in shape
You know how sometimes you get really bored and realize there's nothing to do?.............there you go
It was very dry and there was many dust storms that covered the land, and etc with a think layer of dirt.
With the exception of cultural differences, life was just like any industrialized city, country in the world. Trains, cars, city noise, restaurants, theaters, etc.
Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird gives a good picture of racism in the South during the '30s.
Well how the heck am i supposed to know?! Thats what i wanna find out you wierdos!
colonial life was like a stopid country
not as harsh as it was in the south. they did not have to work for life like saves in the south had to.
kick the can, baseball, handball, basketball, half rubber (somewhat like street hockey), tag, hide and seek, cowboys and Indians, war games...
Life in the south was pure slavery for African Americans and if they tried to escape they'd be tortured like this answer
Basically, fatigued after WWII and keen to build a new way of life by rejecting the tired politics of the 1930s.
they had very bad living conditions and really only got paid $5 and hour wich is hardly anything.
Great, but the south didnt fight for slavery
Life in the South depended on the individual during the 1800s. Slaves had a very hard life while plantation owners were living the great life.
A lot different from the South.
Life in the South for the upper middle class was carefree
Not like it is now.
Since tobacco was a big hit south was rich and lots of slavery.
This is a difficult question to answer as children in South Africa does not represent a homogenous group since South Africa is one of the most unequal countries in the world. Therefore, there is a huge difference in what the life for different children in South Africa is like. For some children life is great, carefree and safe, for others it is the exact opposite. South Africa is a signatory to the Convention on the… Read More
LIfe was hard. so pretty much the same as it is now
it was crazy
While men were off at war in shops, factories and other places, the women had huge responsibilities to cook, clean, and hard labor. In the american civil war women would become nurses and that was the first time in american history for women to help out in the war and make a part.
There life was better then the blacks. Its like today there alot a rascism with the Blacks espically.
Beginning in the early 1930s, the poultry industry was dominated by many small growers and processors
some people believe the 1930's was a depressing decade. boys would share bath water 1 night and the girls the next.
It was too shifty
much like the food we eat today.
the daily life in Carolina's colony was that they farmed, cooked, and hunted
somewhat like there lives before they were freed
somewhat like there lives before they were freed... Apex:)
being an evacuee must have been hard and scary but also exciting at the same time. the children had to leave there family's behind and fit in with foster family's in the country
Like Black Boots, CowBoys Boots
They would do stuff. Sometimes.
They had books,teachers,and etc.
Slavery was harsh throughout the South. It was particularly prevalent as a way of life in the Deep South; in states like Virginia, Georgia, and South Carolina.
It was a hunter gatherer life, very much like that lived today by Amazonian natives or South African bushmen.
