Storyboard Text

  • Before the Dust Bowl, there were many farming families living in areas like Oklahoma and Arkansas. They were content despite the Great Depression.
  • The Dust Bowl drastically affected these farming families by ruining their land. Unable to grow crops and pay daily expenses, they were forced to leave.
  • In Oklahoma, the population dropped 40% when they moved away. By 1940, 2.5 million people moved out of the plain states. Of those people, 200,000 moved to California.
  • The families that were welcomed into California, restarted their lives and continued their farming.
  • OR
  • 125 police acted as bouncers at the state border. They turned away undesired families in fear of being over-run. About 1,500 people arrived each day and most were not warmly welcomed.
