When did the Great Depression end?

In 1932, the incumbent president, Herbert Hoover, lost the election to Franklin D. Roosevelt, who had promised a “new deal” for the American people.

The New Deal was designed to correct the damage caused by the Great Depression. It involved new and groundbreaking legislation and social programs, which were put into effect between 1933 and 1938.

Many of these social programs were also designed to improve race relations.
