Storyboard Text

  • Oh no! We have that big APUSH test today over the 1920s! I totally forgot!
  • Good thing I studied.
  • Please tell me everything you know. My mom will kill me if I fail another test.
  • Sure! Okay so the Roaring Twenties were a major turning point in America's cultural history... lets begin with prohibition.
  • Prohibition began on January 16, 1920, when the Eighteenth Amendment went into effect. Prohibition was a nationwide constitutional ban on the sale, production, importation, and transportation of alcoholic beverages
  • But prohibition caused more bad than good. People snuck alcohol and chose to disobey the law by drinking illegally. Also, violent riots and protests were common.
  • The 1920s were also the era of the Harlem Renaissance, the period of African-American literary and artistic growth.
  • Jazz music and the dance clubs that played it became widely popular as well.
