For this assignment, you should follow the link I gave you earlier (http://studsterkel.matrix.msu.edu/htimes.php (Links to an external site.)) to listen to some of the interviews that Michigan State Univ. posted on their site. I want you to do the following:
- Choose three interviews to listen to. One must be of the recollections of a farmer or laborer, one must be of a labor or farm worker organizer (or one who was a leader in a march), and one must be of someone who was not affected (negatively) by the Depression. You must indicate to me by name the person you are writing about.
- In each instance, summarize the recollections of the interviewee.
- Finally, based on the three interviews you listened to, what would you say was the difficulty of living through the Depression for Americans in general? Explain this response.
