#2 Journal Article Reflection Essay: Social Justice in 1930s and 1940s U.S.A as it affected jazz
Minimum Length 250-275 (one page)
— Social Justice in 1930s and 1940s U.S.A as it affected jazz
This lesson provided two glimpses into the racial divide that continued to dominate American culture in the 1930s and 40s (Down Beat article and Billie Holiday’s Strange Fruit). Remember, Jim Crow laws (in effect from 1876-1965) which racially segregated all parts of daily life were still in effect in the Southern USA, and racial/gender prejudice was common nationwide. Blacks were denied equal opportunity in education and entrance to many professional fields. Women of all races were also discriminated against and suffered from fewer opportunities than men. Write a short essay describing your impressions of Benny Goodman’s first racially integrated band. How might you have handled the situation if you were the band leader? You can see the comments made by many other musicians of the day in the 1939 article you read. This gives you an idea of what some people thought in that time period.
