Women's suffrage,around since the formation of our country, was the protest in which thousands of women (and some men) fought for a woman's right to vote. In 1920, a law passed allowing women over the age of 21 to vote, and women rejoiced all over the country. The law still remains to this very day, with happy women all around America going to vote.
Between the end of WWI and the 1930s, African-American people came in the thousands from the oppressive southern states to the northern states, such as New York, Michigan, and even California! at the end of the 20s, the population of African-Americans in southern states drastically decreased, making way for the Harlem renaissance, the biggest artistic revolution ever!
The Harlem renaissance was a pivotal artistic revolution during and after the great migration. Hundreds of African-American citizens began making music, art, dances, poems, books, and more. Some big names from this period included Louie Armstrong, Aaron Douglas, Zora Neale Hurston, and Langston Hughes.
After WWI, America was one of the nations to emerge rich and victorious, and thus was able to fund many more experiments. Brand new inventions, concepts, and cultures entered the public and were instantly successful. Everything from cars to radios, movies to outfits were bought or used by anyone who could afford them! People would get loans from banks, gain more and more debt to buy these things, and then--- Everything collapsed!
After the gigantic party of the roaring 20s, The stocks drastically dropped after people failed to return the loans they originally applied for. this caused the banks to go broke, meaning that many people lost their life savings. After that, most people lived in poverty, without jobs, and it was not until WWII that people managed to rebuild their lives.
