    In 1929, the Great Depression punched America in the face and didn't stop punching until 1939. But it hit Black folks even harder. Years before the stock market crash of '29, Blacks were already living in despair. At the peak of the Depression, Black unemployment stood at 50% and those who had jobs could expect $5/week.
