Transcript of Apush 1920's
Flappers also began working outside the home and challenging women's traditional societal roles. They advocated voting and women's rights. With time, came the development of dance styles then considered shocking, such as the Charleston, the Shimmy, the Bunny Hug, and the Black Bottom.
Harlem Renaissance African American Contributions The conttibutions of the african americns during the 20's was jazz music. The greatest and most influencial jazz musicians of this time were african americans. They also contributed the Apollo theater which has become a very famous theater for the performing arts. The Harlem Renaissance helped to tear down some racial couscousness due to the popularity of some african american artists and celebrities. It also helped give african americans a greater sense of individualism and racial pride. Industrialization was attracting people to cities from rural areas and gave rise to a new mass culture. Contributing factors leading to the Harlem Renaissance were the Great Migration of African Americans to northern cities, which concentrated ambitious people in places where they could encourage each other, and the First World War, which had created new industrial work opportunities for tens of thousands of people. Factors leading to the decline of this era include the Great Depression.
Vocab Renaissance: a revival or rebirth, esp of culture and learning Jazz: Compare blues bebop bop Dixieland free hard bop harmolodics mainstream modern jazz New Orleans jazz swing See also trad a kind of music of African-American origin, characterized by syncopated rhythms, solo and group improvisation, and a variety of harmonic idioms and instrumental techniques. It exists in a number of styles Sports The 1920's were known as "the golden age of sports" because of the fact that sports, mainly baseball, were starting to get alot of popularity and fan support during this time. They were also getting alot more financial support as well from wealthy fans and businesses as well as greater revenue from their increasing crowd sizes which helped them with publicity as well as other things like new stadiums. Essentail Question: Chapter 4 The Flapper represented the "New Woman" because they began to start acting more independently and more like actual "people". They Started the decline of social barriers against women since they were acting so socialy and freely. The womens movement during the 1920's can be seen as a success because women were starting to get attention in a way that began to get society to stop thinking of women as inferior to men and more as equals. Essential Question: Chapter 5 Chapter 3 Vocab
Speakeasy: a place where alcoholic drink was sold illicitly during Prohibition Bootlegger: to make, carry, or sell (illicit goods, esp alcohol) Essential Question: Chapter 2 The Attitudes toward immigrants, blacks and other minorities reflect the intolerance of the decade because it shows how people, mostly white americans, did not tolerate new immigrants or african americans during the 20's. This can mostly be credited to the slipping economy and the fight for jobs and financial security. The nostalgia and attitudes from the pas conflict with modern ideas of the decade because, during this time people wanted to "expand" either socially or economically, yet a majority of the nation wanted to return to more discriminative days when financial security was also more stable. The negros improved their lives in the 1920s by proving that they had contributional talents and skills that brought some of them to celebrity status which helped to ease some racial tension between them and whites. Mass Media: the means of communication that reach large numbers of people in a short time, such as television, newspapers, magazines, and radio Women Thinking Like A Historian Chapter 1 Much has changed from the 1920’s to today in the sense of popular culture. Today, we now have 3D TVs, surrounds sound speakers, i-pods, computers, the internet, ect. This is much different, technologically speaking, from the 20’s, where the newest technology included radios and new advertising techniques. However the overall theme of popular culture has not changed much from the 20s to the present day. Everyone still wants to have and utilize the latest technology. Everyone also wants to dress the era and be “on the band wagon”. We still have cars as well as airplanes in today’s society. Sports are as popular as ever in today’s modern society. Today we have mainly benefited from innovations to the airplane and automobile, which were around in the 1920’s. society as a whole has benefited from these contributions. Chapter 2 Today we are MUCH more tolerant of racial differences and immigration policies. Blacks and whites now have equal rights and anyone is allowed to legally come into the country. However there is still some prejudice and inappropriate judgment that still goes on such as some racism. We also still have some prejudice against Mexicans because some people will argue that they are taking jobs away from true American citizens. In the end however, many people, including blacks and immigrants, have benefited from the changes that have come forth in American tolerance since the 1920’s. Chapter 3 Today people have the freedom to produce alcohol as they wish, with guidelines and restrictions, apart from the prohibition of the 1920’s. Today we do not have any prohibition. However it is similar today in the sense that we still have regulations on alcohol such as proof amount and drinking laws and punishments. The people who have most likely benefited from this change from a prohibition era to now are the big alcohol companies. Also, society as a whole benefits from the restrictions and laws on alcohol that make it a safer for the general public. Chapter 4
Today women are equals to men in society. This is different from in the 1920’s when they were seen as inferior to men. However, today it can still be said that our society has its own flappers, women who dress and act in ways that grab society’s attention. The people who have benefited from flappers and the women’s movement of the 1920’s are, obviously, women. The flappers started to get society to notice women and to treat more as people than as inferior beings to men. This caused women to become equals to men and is also why this category is different now than it was in the 1920’s
Chapter 5 Today blacks are treated with equal rights as whites, unlike the discrimination of the 1920’s. Also, no group of people is really making a social, race encouraged, movement like the blacks did with the Harlem renaissance Today we still have very famous black artists, in every style of art(music, literature, and art). The people who benefited from the emergence of black independence are the blacks. They now have social equality in today’s society as well as their independence along the lines of a race with their arts and talents.
