The 1930s marked the worst financial crisis in United States history,  the Great Depression. Men and women struggled to find jobs in order  to feed their families. During these tough years, people did not have  money to spend on entertainments and dance clubs. The one and  only, Radio continued to be the center of entertainment in America.  Under this condition, it became the most popular music of the 1930's  and 1940's. Jazz was played on the airwaves night after night. For  listeners, this exciting music made the Great Depression more  bearable. It reminded them of what America could be.  During 1939-1945, many jazz musicians were drafted to fight in World  War II. Big dance bands had difficulties finding musicians. In the  United States, there were war restrictions on the use of plastics and  gasoline. Fewer records were produced to conserve plastic, and  gasoline cutbacks made it difficult for bands to travel. African

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
