A still from the movie "The Grapes of Wrath". Series presented by the Watertown Living History Project. Funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities. Set during the Great Depression, the movie focuses on the Joads, a poor family of tenant farmers driven from their Oklahoma home by drought, economic hardship, and changes in financial and agricultural industries. Due to their nearly hopeless situation, and in part because they were trapped in the Dust Bowl, the Joads set out for California. Along with thousands of other "Okies", they sought jobs, land, dignity, and a future.
