I need help on how people influenced us.
I am doing some history homework about the great depression (late 1920's through early 1940's) and I need some future connections like how did Duke Ellington influence us today? Or Walt Disney influence us today...ect. I can't find anything on the internet that says (name) inspired me to be a musician or whatever. I am doing a project on art, literature, radio, and entertainment in the late 1920's to the early 1940's Please help.
Walt Disney pervades today's culture. People flock to its theme parks. Many people only know the old fairy tales as they are presented by Disney movies.
Google Woody Guthrie. His 100th birthdate just passed so you should find a lot of artists, like Jackson Brown, etc. that will claim Woody as their muse.
