Events[edit]

  • The Great Depression had started. Unemployment rates had risen to 25% of the workforce, and up to 60% of African American men were out of work. Cities were crowded with workseekers. Black musicians were not allowed to play in studios or on radio. However, jazz music was resilient. While businesses, including the record industry, were down, the dance halls were packed with people dancing the jitterbug to the music of big bands, which would come to be called swing music.[1]
