Description
The Roaring Twenties, one of the most dynamic eras in American history was a year that foretold the future. Despite being the first full year of armistice, 1920 was not a peaceful time, it contained the greatest act of terrorism to date and while thought of as starting a prosperouse time, for most people, life had never been more unaffordable. Meanwhile, African Americans were putting their stamp on culture as the rise of jazz spurred on the Harlem Renaissance. Though people today imagine the frivolous image of the flapper dancing the night away, the truth was that a new kind of power had been bestowed on women and it had nothing to do with the dance floor.
