Room 108, O’Shaughnessy-Frey Library
Listen to guest artists Wilkinson James (English professors Andy Scheiber and Liz Wilkinson) singing songs of the early union/labor movement, the Great Depression, the Café Society and the political stirrings that would lead to World War II.

The societal tumult that saw massive unemployment, attempts at unionization, great wealth in the small upper class, and growing international concerns about political stability and helped produce new styles of art and folk music. The visual tool that had worked so well in World War I, the propaganda poster, also was utilized in the labor movement. The parallels between international and workers’ propaganda are startling, in the same way that the differences between different layers of society grew sharper during this period.
