Transcript: 1950s by Kenny Venancio Introduction In this age there were many changes like new music such as rock "n" roll, new technology like tvs and radios, and also automobiles. Benefits and disadvantages to cars The down side to this change of the automobiles was that many of the roads for travel were dirt roads and could easily flatten the tires because they were extremely bumpy. Highways were made to help people travel to far away places easier. In this process people who lived in apartments or houses that were near the highway or on the highway construction were kicked out, basically being thrown out of there own homes. the tvs and radios The tvs in the 1950s showed most of the change that went on through this age. Entertainment started to skyrocket which was very good in this time period for the people to make money off of the tv. This made massive bussiness and comedy helped people stay entertained instead of going places to be entertained. The radios in this time were in competition with the tv's but the new invention of the tv became more popular by americans. Radios decided to broadcast news, weather, music and community issues. This helped the radio views increase by 35% and helped the radio survive. Segregated americans in the 1950s In this time many native latinos and african americans were extremely poor. The "White flight" impacted the community because the rich people left the cities and the major income taxes dropped rapidly. Because of this lower class americans were put into poverty. Next the urban renewal came in and the National Housing Act of 1949 was made which stated that a house and a suitable living environment for every american would be made. Also the mexican american known as Felix Longoria was killed in the Philippines and the hometown undertaker in Texas refused to give him a good burial because they were mexican. Protesters organized the American G.I. in 1948 to go against the prejudice. The teenagers of the 1950s In the 1950s most of the teens were recognized as the first to be unique. After the war was over many teenagers would not stay in school or work to help support the familes. ADs like coca cola also influenced teens to buy and drink their products. Teens also wanted to get clothing to fit in and look good. And Finally... In conclusion the world in the 1950s showed how much teens, automobiles, and racial prejudice was in this time period and how much things have changed. THE END. In the 1950s started to transform what america has become today for the this was the Golden age. Main Statement Automobiles changed the american way of life by helping americans travel. Gas was abundant which was very good because it helped people in their everyday life. People bought more new cars because of this. More impotantly the designs of the cars attracted many people. ADs persuaded people that if they bought their car they would look wealthy and urge others to go purchase the newest model.
