  • THE ROARING TWENTIES

  • The Roaring Twenties were a period of dramatic changes and challenges in the United States, characterized by an over abundance of fun and flapping as well as serious social confrontations.
  • WHITE POWER
  • In the late 1910s alcohol was causing major problems in the United States such as domestic violence and negligence between husbands and their wives. In response to this groups of women and religious folk protested alcohol heavily. In 1919 The United States Government created the 18th Amendment banning the manufacture, transport, and sale of alcohol.
  • SCIENCE IS VERY REAL AND RELEVANT!!
  • In response to the 18th Amendment, underground establishments (run by the first mafia families) called speakeasies began to sell alcohol illegally. Police corruption was also rampant as no one took the law seriously. Speakeasies also served as a place for a new wave of young women called flappers, to express themselves wildly and care-free. Simultaneously the first open celebration of Black culture, The Harlem Renaisaance, is taking place.
  • In a more grim reality the Ku Klux Klan and Nativist sentiment in general was increasing heavily. The Klan reached an all time high membership of 5 million and they marched on Washington in 1925 and 1928.
  • The 1920s also saw a push and pull between modern and traditional ideas. In the Scopes trial of 1925, John T. Scopes is put on trial by The State of Tennessee for teaching the theory of Evolution. He is eventually convicted and charged a $500 fine. United States Citizens wanted the comfort of what they know from the past, as well as the new technology of the future.
  • All in all the 1920s was a time of great glee and enjoyment, defined by parties and over spending. The twenties also signified a time of growing pains from old and new ways of thinking. Those things and others combined to make the rich culture and history of the Roaring Twenties so memorable and iconic.
