How it started
here are some good products that are less than they are in the regular market
We are going to have to keep on lowering are prices to overpower these people
By people selling there stocks the businesses no longer had any people to sell to so they went out of buisness. Soon after the banks closed. People lost their money and became homeless and ended up living in places called hoovervilles.
People become homeless and out of money

People got Angry and blamed others
People started discriminating against the people who had just recently gotten good jobs. Women and the colored. It was mainly white men protesting.
Black people coming over from the Great migration were supposed to be treated equal. But of course that was not carried out. Not the government but by the white people.
People ended up living for a long time being homeless, and hungry. People blamed the government. And it all started because people sold their stocks.
Also there was something going on called the dust bowl. This greatly impacted farmers because their farms had dust go over them. This made there also be a lack of food during the great depression
