Work on your organization. Some of the images don't connect to the text well and you do not provide enough information within each section (i.e. Leadbelly, Woody Guthrie, Big Band).

Primary Source 3: Moving Images and Sound Recordings

Devonte Wright's insight:

 Annotations: Ammericans used music to express their selves over a beat and get heard. People would listen to music and pray it got them to the next day.  In these locales, they documented dance tunes, cowboy songs, traditional ballads, square dance and play party calls, camp council meetings, camp court proceedings, conversations, storytelling sessions, and personal experience narratives of the Dust Bowl refugees who inhabited the camps.

During this difficult period in history, surprisingly most musical hits remained very positive. Although some songs dealt with the harsh reality around them, like Bing Crosby's
Devonte Wright's insight:

One of the most popular songs of the 1930's was Silent Night, as recorded by Bing Crosby. Perhaps by coincidence, or perhaps due to research, Silent Night does make an appearance multiple times in the Wind at my back series. During 'A Family Again' in season 4, the town of New Bedford gathers around the Christmas tree and sings Silent Night.

Devonte Wright's insight:

American popular music from the 1930's reflects the cultural and social conditions that shaped the American identity during the period. For the purposes of this academic endeavor, the term "popular music" applies to any music in any genre from a select time frame that aspired to and achieved popularity with a particular audience.

American History 1st Period

 

 

Dear Mom,

 

          How have you been? I have been struggling because of the dust bowl and all of he dirt while I am cleaning and listening to Woody Guthrie. The Music here is pretty cool. All I have been listening to is jazz music. And I have learned a lot about the life of jazz. AA created the jazz. Also it was emerged in south and Midwest. Some of the jazz musicians are Louis Armstrong, Bessie smith & duke Ellington. The sound merged in blue, ragtime, & popular music. Some of the authors wrote of the jury and pains of being AA. Where I am at now, the music industry soared tremendously throughout the world and people were picking whom they liked and whom they wanted to purchase. But jazz breaks downs the racial & social divisions.

           

 

          Everyone is buying music and actually listening and caring about it now. In some places the dust bowl have messed up their music players but every since I moved in with my cousin, I haven’t had any dust problems and I have time to enjoy music. Movies are starting to become more enjoyable now that the arts are expanding and broadcasters are spreading the news about what is most likely good or not. 

            With the crime rate, it’s hard to keep up with the stuff without it getting taken, if you don’t have a gun. I am always safe because I never leave my house without my heat.  With the poor security of the community, the people without proper protection could get robbed easily because there is nothing to do about it and technology is slacking.

 

                As I was traveling around I had came across some music I never heard of before in my life and for the first time of me hearing this the music was pretty good and I really wanted to hear some more artist and learn more about this music they call jazz. They call it jazz music too and even though I have never heard for it I learned a lot of information about it too. Jazz was emerged in the south and in the Midwest. It was created By A.A. Blues, ragtime, & popular music merged the Sound. But jazz music was based on improvisation. Throughout the 1920s and 1930s it is symbolic. 

 

                 Jazz also helps break down racial & social divisions. As I was learning this information they named a few jazz artist like Bessie Smith, Duke Ellington and many more. Also I got to learn about some of the writers too. The writers of the 1920s and 1930s were referred to the lost generation. But it also led World War 1 a long to believe in old times. They saw good men die in World War 1 and question the rights and wrongs.  But due to me having to pay my debts I was forced to sell all of the lands that I had. After the money problems I was having I finally got back on my feet like the unthinkable happen a natural disaster happen and I was had to move again to a small town or country.

 

 

                          I was unable to buy consumer goods due to my debt and due to me now have no were to live, nothing to eat, and nothing to myself. But myself & some of the farmers tried our best to survive off of credit and were much as we could. But the although myself & some of the workers were living like that for right now the supply of consumer good was getting larger than the demand for consumer. On tope of this craziness I tried to find a job. But my prayers were answered and I found a job and began to start working and started to put money in my pocket. The more money I was making the more I kept getting myself outta debt. Till I got laded off which started to put a gap between what the rich and poor could afford.

 

 

                             After I got laded off I started to struggle again which putted me back were I didn’t want to go again but what could I do? Mom you just don’t understand on how much I miss home. I miss home a lot and I’m just ready to come home after this dust bowl. After this dust bowl is over I am going to come home and start all over. I just ready to close this chapter in my life and never open it again. Plus I’m just ready to start a new chapter in my life and start all over and when I say start all over I mean by starting from fresh and start doing stuff on my own. But I’m Closing this letter with this to let you know how I was doing and do let you know that I am doing ok and to let you know that I am coming home soon.

 

 

From , Frankie Baby.

Welcome to the website for the Lawrence Township Public Schools.
We are a Pre-K through 12 public school district located in Mercer County in central New Jersey, just north of our state's capital, Trenton.
Devonte Wright's insight:

Annotation: Music brings together families and communities and gives expression to sorrow, rage, love and joy. View historic sheet music as well as presentations about the role of music in American life. Listen to some of Edison’s early recordings, study dance instruction manuals and view video clips of dancers illustrating dances ranging from the Renaissance to 20th century Ragtime. Read Copland’s and Bernstein’s personal letters.

Primary Source 1: U.S. Depression, FDR, & the New Deal—Miller Center

Devonte Wright's insight:

Annotations: The depression had a lot to do with the delay of music. It also gave people time to mess around with it because the job rate was low. With no jobs americans had time to do other things and expiriment. Music like jazz and blues started to soar. americans started buying music and listen to it as they got more leisure time and money.

Website #2: Music in the United States in the 1930s

Devonte Wright's insight:

The 1930s was a decade of hard times in the Unites States. The stock market crash of 1929 caused an economic depression throughout the United States and much of the rest of the world. Then in the 1930s, there was a terrible drought in the western United States that led to what became known as the Dust Bowl.
