Fads of the 1920s By:Cassondra Mark Dancing Dancing was a major fad of the 1920s.
Some of the Dances inclue the Charleston, the Lindy Hop, the Breakaway, and the Black Bottom. These dances became very popular and then they died off. People would have dance marathons that could last for days. In a dance marthon you would want to have a partner that was about your size. So you could drag them around while they sleep and they could do the same for you. By: Micayah Ambriz Music of the

Louis Armstrong had a big influence on the jazz genre. Prohibition was impossible to enforce. Bootleggers were trying to sneak alcohol, and speakeasies were formed. Speak Easies were regular looking buildings but was a bar on the inside. They were called speakeasies because you had to speak quietly so the cops weren’t suspicious. Prohibition was repealed by the 21st Amendment because they needed the money that the alcohol produced. Problems with Prohibition Prohibition was the banned of all alcohol drinking and selling. Alcohol wasted grain that could be sent to the troops fighting in the war. The 18th Amendment was established on January 16th, 1920.

They acted like men by smoking cigarettes, and drinking alcohol. They wore shorter skirts up to the knee. They also wore there shoes unbuckled so it makes a flapping sound when they walk and that’s how they got there name flapper. Flappers Back in the 1920’s women where not equally treated as well as men. Women didn’t have the rights to do much of anything.

Women could rarely find a job, but it didn’t really matter if they got a job because they would have to quit any job they had to be married and become a homemaker.

But if they had a job they got paid way less then men about 54%-60% of what men got paid. Women In The 1920’s Women in the 1920's

It was a long time ago.
I have almost forgotten my dream.
But it was there then,
In front of me,
Bright like a sun--
My dream.
And then the wall rose,
Rose slowly,
Between me and my dream.
Rose until it touched the sky--
The wall.
I am black.
I lie down in the shadow.
No longer the light of my dream before me,
Above me.
Only the thick wall.
Only the shadow.
My hands!
My dark hands!
Break through the wall!
Find my dream!
Help me to shatter this darkness,
To smash this night,
To break this shadow
Into a thousand lights of sun,
Into a thousand whirling dreams
Of sun!
