My family knows a lot about the 1920's. My grandparents were still living during that time and they got to experience many things that occured during that time.
I have always been a huge fan of baseball and my grandparents have told many things about it but they always talk about Babe Ruth. He was a home runner back in the 1920’s, everybody loved him.
Once my mom told my about Some klan called the KKK and they were against black people. Today I saw the KKK and they were looking at me so i told my mom about it and she told me I couldn't go out at night anymore because it is dangerous for me when the Klan was out there.
My grandpa was talking to me about how some problems in the 1920's were Gangsters and Prohibition. He said that ''gangsters back then weren't like how they are today, they were called gangsters because they committed crimes like selling alcohol when it was under prohibition and other so crimes that were illegal. I asked about what Prohibition was and he told me it was part of the 18th amendment, it prohibited alcohol in the 1920's.
My grandma then talked to me about flappers and how she was one of them. She said that flappers were women who were ready for a change in how they looked and their behavior, pretty much just ready to change their lives. Flappers were a huge part of the ''Roaring 20's'' according to my grandma.
My dad talked to me about Marcus Garvey and how he caused a movement called ''Back to Africa''. He told me that Marcus garvey was a guy who wanted a separate society from the rest of the races. He felt that if they separated themselves from the others they wouldn't get judged by the whites. He had different believements from other groups and he also did no violence. He was imprisoned in the mid-1920's.
Well I guess the 1920’s had many influences on the world and it changed many things. The 20’s weren’t all pros because as you can see it had cons as well.
