Without woman no voters would be alive. They bring all the men into the world and all the men that think that woman shouldn't vote wouldn't be around. Also woman do just as much work as men AND raise their children. Finally, during the 1920's woman got their right to vote and have been voting just as men have almost 100 years later.
As Richard Corliss states, "Watch Buster Keaton, in the 19 short films and 11 silent features he made between 1920 and 1928." This shows that in the 1920's they didn't have the technology like what we have today. For instance, they had silent films and black and white television while now we have voice and a whole bunch of different colors in our films.
As the text states, "The Great Migration was the relocation of more than 6 million African Americans from the rural South to the cities of the North, Midwest and West from about 1916 to 1970." African Americans wanted to leave the South and travel North to escape segregation. The text also says,"During the Great Migration, African Americans began to build a new place for themselves in public life, actively confronting racial prejudice as well as economic, political and social challenges to create a black urban culture that would exert enormous influence in the decades to come." This shows that African Americans migrated to be equal and not be separated for the color of their skin.
To start with, woman have been trying to get the right to vote since the Revolutionary War. Woman have been working so hard to get the right to vote. For instance, they would protest and protest while police men pulled them out of the streets and still didn't give up. That shows a lot of bravery. In addition, in 1920 the Nineteenth Amendment was added and gave woman 21 and older the right to vote.
As the article states, "Hughes wrote in his memoir. "Hundreds of colored* people! I wanted to shake hands with them, speak to them....Harlem! I stood there, dropped my bags, and felt happy again." This shows how the Harlem Renaissance turned African Americans lives around and gave them a new life/beginning . The reading also states, "In the 1920s, artists and writers in "the capital of black America" produced an explosion of creativity in music and culture." This tells how in the 1920s gave African Americans a voice to be heard by the whole country.
