The Great Depression was a major economic crash that hit the US in the late 1920s. While many people suffered from the crash, Black Americans were hit especially hard. Photographs from the time give readers a firsthand look at the historic era. Then discover the theories behind the crash, the policies made to boost the economy, and how the Great Depression ended.

Read Woke™ Books are created in partnership with Cicely Lewis, the Read Woke librarian. Inspired by a belief that knowledge is power, Read Woke Books seek to amplify the voices of people of the global majority (people who are of African, Arab, Asian, and Latin American descent and identify as not white), provide information about groups that have been disenfranchised, share perspectives of people who have been underrepresented or oppressed, challenge social norms and disrupt the status quo, and encourage readers to take action in their community.
