The labor force demands of WWI accelerated the move from farms to cities and initiated the Great Migration out of the South. The Depression slowed migration as worried people stayed close to home. The Dust Bowl migration, driven by environmental as well as an economic crisis, was the memorable exception. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG

    Joseph Rosendo's Travelscope [#711H] A San Antonio Christmas San Antonio is a festival town and Christmas is a most festive time of year. Joseph joins the locals and visitors to celebrate the season along San Antonio's famous river walk surrounded by songs, decorations and plenty of holiday cheer. Yet San Antonio is more than the River Walk, and Christmas in San Antonio means more than twinkling lights. In San Antonio, faith is real and "Feliz Navidad" is heard more often than "Merry Christmas." So, Joseph explores the city's spiritual roots at festive events like Mission San Jose's Mirachi Mass, as well as Christmas and Chanukah events held at the historic La Villita in the Arneson River Theater. The real meaning of Christmas is most evident when he gathers with San Antonio families in their homes to honor their heritage and practice their customs in traditional ceremonies such as the Tamalada - holiday tamale making - and in the city's San Fernando Cathedral at the midnight Serenada for the Virgin of Guadalupe. duration 26:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)
