Aside from writing, what are other methods humans have used to tell stories?
Looking back in history, humans are naturally a story-telling species. Whether stories were spoken and past down through generations, or pictures depicting these stories, humans have always told stories. As technology has progressed, writing became a method, while print pushed what could be distributed forward. While technology continued to grow, so did the platforms allowing stories to be produced. Movies, the internet, and new devices holding written stories are now available to humans to tell any range of length or type of story.

Were the experiences among different races and cultural backgrounds in America similar or different during the Great Depression?
During the Great Depression, there were similar experiences amongst people of the same race or ethnic background. However, there were vast differences amongst the experiences in between the different races and cultural groups in America. While typically the Great Depression is thought of as a period with vast jobless and homeless struggles across these diverse groups, certain groups had it much harder than others. White American's were in a club. Simply having the right color of skin, you could still be chosen to work on farms or industries that had still managed to stay afloat. It might not have been the same amount of money or life style, but compared to African-American's, Hispanic-American's, or indigenous people of this country, white Americans were not frozen out of every single industry. These minoritized groups were often frozen out completely, or if they were lucky enough to obtain a job, would often work for free before being fired, or earn much less than there white coworkers. Making one single mistake for these minoritized groups often meant being fired or even getting the rest of the group paid less and singled out for even worse treatment on the job to get them to quit so a white American could be hired.
