While World War II, emerging full blown for the United States in December 1941, along with the rise of conservative politics, served to devastate the New Deal’s social, economic, and cultural programs. Popular culture included a visible interracial agenda, with folk music playing a vital role. The immense popularity of folk music in the mid-1960s, led by the Kingston Trio, Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, and Peter, Paul and Mary, fueled by the numerous record companies, folk festivals, radio programs, folk clubs, and so much else, drew from the legacy of the Depression years.
