    New dances were being introduced because of the boom in the movie industry, people in movies would do dances such as the Tango or the Charleston. The Charleston was one of the most popular dances of the time. This dance was introduced by an African-American crew part of the Afro-American Broadway musical “Running Wild.” It became a symbol for the 1920s Jazz Age. This dance involved the kicking of the heels, with a bending movement in the knees along with the music. Flappers would dance to the Charleston and they took part in this dance called the “Black Bottom” this became an extremely popular performance. {http://my.ilstu.edu/~lmerri/uhigh/1920%27s/flappers.gif}
    The youth was more interested in dancing then the elderly because the youth took part in clubbing and parties. Fond Waltz and Tango could be considered scandalous dancing because it involved contact with the opposite sex.Lindy Hop, named after Charles Lindburgh’s was another form of dancing which involved a lot of jumping and swinging was introduced during this time.

    Gabriella “Coco” Chanel became one of the century’s most influential designers. Her designs emphasized comfort and simplicity with her chemise dresses and cardigan jackets. She also introduced her signature perfume fragrance, Chanel No. 5, in 1925, which still exists today.
    Clothing was still made at home in the 1920’s, though some catalogs and departments did exist as a result of the industrial revolution. The introduction of electronically powered sewing machines, led to mass production and distribution of new clothing styles that as a result developed full-scale consumerism. There were also other cultural influences on the prints of the period from China and Egypt. There were some kimono styles, embroidered silks, and intense red colors in the fashions. The discovery of King Tut's tomb brought Egyptian fashions and accessories, including snake bracelets that encircled the upper arm. The cubist art movement and the 1925 Exhibition of Decorative Arts in Paris influenced the appearance of dramatic artistic designs in clothing well into the 1930s.

    ART
    There were two major art movements developed in the 1920’s, and those were Art Deco and Surrealism. The Surrealist movement began after World War I in European avant-garde literary and art circles. The Surrealists developed techniques such as automatic drawing (developed by André Masson), automatic painting, decalcomania, frottage, fumage, grattage and parsemage that became significant parts of Surrealist practice. Art Deco was a movement in decorative arts that affected architecture. Although the movement did not originate from the World Fair in 1925, it got its name from it. It was a major style in Europe from the early 1920s, and caught on in the U.S. around 1928. Art Deco used materials such as aluminum, stainless steel, lacquer, inlaid wood, shark skin, and zebra skin. The prints usually had zigzag and stepped forms, and sweeping curves. There were other smaller developments in art in the 1920’s. The Modernist Movement-George Luks, Charles W. Hawthorne Abstract expressionism-Willem de Kooning Dadaism-Georgia O’Keefe, Morgan Russell, Man Ray Realism-Thomas Hart Benton, Edward Hopper, Grant Wood, Leon Kroll Landscape-Aldro Thompson Hibbard, N. C. Wyeth The best museums featured shows by these important artists.Illustrations were also very popular in the 1920’s, especially with the works of Maxfield Parrish and C. Coles Phillips. Parish helped shape the “Golden Age” of illustration. In the 1920’s however Parrish turned away from illustration and concentrated on painting for its own sake. {http://www.day-lab.com/blog/cpfa1.jpg}

    These changes during the twenties made a transition in the homes from the 19th century to the homes we have today. The new methods for building homes and buildings have continued to improve throughout the years, making buildings and homes a better place to be in. The buildings and homes we have today have progressed from that time, and the twenties change in architecture played a great role for the buildings in present time. The modern style of housing allowed for small families to accommodate in a home that look good in the sense of beauty and design (such as color, materials used for the house, the texture of the homes and etc.), to live in a home that provided good heating and cooling systems depending on the weather, to make the home convenient for the whole family (such as housekeeping, playing, indoor and outdoor activities, etc.), and make sure the homes were cheaper and make it so there wasn’t much touch up required afterwards, if there was damage done to the house.
    The use of reinforced concrete became very popular during this time because it was used to make homes, churches, commercial buildings, and even bridges. This is because concrete is a stable and strong material that can last for a long period of time, so it made all buildings more reliable to live in and it was better material for the weather conditions. The concrete material was used to make the walls, stairs, floors, roofs because it was reliable material. Buildings made from concrete were also less likely to catch on fire or cause a leak because of rain. Today most buildings are made from concrete because it is a reliable material since it is stronger than wood and etc. However, many homes today are not made from concrete, because the concrete material is very costly, and it would cost way too much money to make a home all out of concrete.

    MUSIC
    Jazz, Ragtime and Broadway musicals were features of 1920's music. Jazz gained popularity in America and worldwide by the 1920s. Nothing quite like it had ever happened before in America. New exuberant dances were devised to take advantage of the upbeat tempos of Jazz and Ragtime music. By the mid-1920s, jazz was being played in dance halls and roadhouses and speakeasies all over the country. Early jazz influences found their first mainstream expression in the music used by marching bands and dance bands of the day, which was the main form of popular concert music in the early twentieth century. By the mid-1920s, jazz was being played in dance halls and roadhouses and speakeasies all over the country. Early jazz influences found their first mainstream expression in the music used by marching bands and dance bands of the day, which was the main form of popular concert music in the early twentieth century. Meanwhile, radio and phonograph records — Americans bought more than 100 million of them in 1927 — were bringing jazz to locations so remote that no band could reach them. And the music itself was beginning to change — an exuberant, collective music was coming to place more and more emphasis on the innovations of supremely gifted individuals. Improvising soloists, struggling to find their own voices and to tell their own stories, were about to take center stage. In its early years jazz {http://starless-eyes.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/jazz.jpg} was considered the devils music by diverse segments of the American public. Vigorous public debate raged between supporters and detractors. A typical exchange took place between music critic Ernest Newman who discredited Jazz in a 1927 magazine article, with a reply soon forthcoming from jazz-king Paul Whiteman who argued that jazz was a musical force- and we know who history shows was correct in his views. Public dance halls, clubs, and tea rooms opened in the cities. Strangely named black dances inspired by African style dance moves, like the shimmy, turkey trot, buzzard lope, chicken scratch, monkey glide, and the bunny hug were eventually adopted by the general public. The cake walk, developed by slaves as a send-up of their masters' formal dress balls, became the rage. White audiences saw these dances first in vaudeville shows, then performed by exhibition dancers in the clubs. The popular dance music of the time was not jazz, but there were early forms taking shape in the evolving blues-ragtime experimental area that would soon turn into jazz. Popular Tin Pan Alley composers like Irving Berlin incorporated ragtime influence into their compositions, though they rarely used the specific musical devices that were second nature to jazz players—the rhythms, the blue notes. Few things did more to popularize the idea of hot music than Berlin's hit song of 1911,"Alexander's Ragtime Band," which became a craze as far from home as Vienna. Although the song wasn't written in rag time, the lyrics describe a jazz band, right up to jazzing up popular songs, as in the line, "If you want to hear the Swanee River played in ragtime...." The 1920's were Broadway's prime years, with over 50 new musicals opening in just one season. Record numbers of people paid up to $3.50 for a seat at a musical. It was also a decade of incredible artistic developments in the musical theatre. Even in the 1920's, the lights of broadway lit up the billboards at night in a huge splash of color that was immortalized in song. The dazzling lights were an attraction in their own right that compared with the shows in popularity. The Broadway shows were produced by showmen who took musical theatre seriously and tried to provide quality entertainment while making a profit at the same time. This attitude kept the musical theatre booming right through the 1920s. Among the hundreds of popular musical comedies that debuted on Broadway in the early 1920s, two classic examples epitomize the Broadway musical of that era – Sally and No, No, Nanette.

    The 1920’s were the birth of many museums such as the Philadelphia Museum of Art in 1928, and the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. The Philadelphia Museum of Art increased the number of educational art programs offered, and opened the public’s eyes to art. MOMA was the first museum to display works of modern art in 6 areas: architecture and design, drawings, film and video, painting and sculpture, photography, and prints and illustrated books. It has greatly contributed to the spread of the modern visual arts to the public.
    Alfred Stieglitz at the type was a distinguished photographer and artist. As the publisher of two photography periodicals, he helped raise photography from a scientific curiosity to an art. He was also one of the strongest promoters of pictorial photography.
    The art of the 1920 remains classics in the areas of illustration with the fadeaway girl, surrealist paintings and art deco patterns. Like the art movements or fashion styles, the artists from the 1920’s remain huge influences to those of present day. The Museum of Modern Art remains the biggest contribution of the time period because it continues to show those that show interest in the arts all of the different types.
    VIOLENCE
    Throughout the 1800's, Americans were fascinated with gangs and gangsters. The early gangs in the United States rose out of the new immigrants that came during the early 1900’s. The most notorious gang during this era formed in New York City called the Five Points Gang. A notorious gang leader Al “Scarface” Capone was powerful in the late 1910’s and early 1920’s. He eventually became one of the most violent and prolific gangsters in the United States. The Al Capone style of gangster has molded the American gangster experience. Street gangs that flourished during the 1920's and 30's gangs became a symbol of lower income neighborhoods and ethnic ghettos. America's new immigrant communities and ghetto neighborhoods saw their youth forming gangs.
    ...
    Other Race Riots: One of the most violent of these riots took place in East St. Louis, Illinois. Racial tensions heightened with labor troubles in the city. Rumors swept white neighborhoods that blacks were arming themselves. On July 2, 1917 a protest meeting at the Labor Temple turned into a mob which marched on the black neighborhoods. Several days of shootings followed in which somewhere between 100 and 200 people died, most of them African American. Thousands fled the city as a result.
    Other Lynchings: In 1913 Leo Frank was lynched in Marietta, Georgia, the hometown of the girl he allegedly murdered, thirteen-year-old Mary Phagan. The lynching persuaded American Jews of the necessity of creating an Anti-Defamation League. In 1915 the case helped launch a very different sort of organization, the second Ku Klux Klan. Its initial cross-burning was at the gravesite of Mary Phagan.
    The “new immigrants” that arose out of the time period has led to a lot of the gang violence that has shaped America today. The organized violence with the Ku Klux Klan worsened the lynchings, mobs and race riots that became characteristic of the 1950’s. If government had tried to control gang violence instead of prohibition, the outcome would have been different.
    IMMIGRATION
    Not only did isolationists oppose U.S. involvement in European affairs, they also opposed the flood of European immigrants coming to the U.S. Between 1900 and 1915, more than 13 million immigrants came to the U.S., many of them from eastern and southern Europe and many either Catholic or Jewish, to the general dismay of the Protestant American public. Many Americans viewed these immigrants as a threat to American religious and social values, as well as to economic opportunities. In 1921, Congress set a quota of 350,000 for annual immigration. In 1924, the National Origins Act cut that number to 164,000. This standard curtailed immigration from southern and eastern Europe and excluded Asians entirely. The U.S. used restrictive immigration policies in the 1920s based on the 1890 Census. Since the Census reflected higher numbers of northern Europeans, immigrants from those countries had greater opportunities to emigrate. Gradually, southern Europeans were included in the white category over the next census decades. Those denied equal status were marked as Hispanics, Asians, African Americans and Native peoples. By the 1920 census, these racial categories had become Chinese, Indian, Japanese, Mulatto, Negro and White. {http://www.usdiplomacy.org/exhibit/images/isolationcartoon.jpg}
    America was also anti-immigrant on the state level too. Virginia's Racial Integrity Act of 1924 created the "one-drop rule" which proposed a person with even "one drop" of non-white ancestry was classified as "colored". Anti-immigrant sentiments also spread to court cases. Under the Naturalization Act of 1906, only white persons and persons of African descent or African nativity were eligible to become naturalized citizens. In 1922, a Japanese businessman named Takao Ozawa filed for U.S. citizenship and argued that people of Japanese descent should be classified as white. Associate Justice George Sutherland ruled that only Caucasians were white and the Japanese were not covered by any Naturalization Act. Another court case, United States v. Bhagat Singh Thind, addressed U.S. citizenship in a similar manner. The decision classified South Asian Indians as Asian for the first time, and also stripped the Indians of their American citizenship. Some Indian land owners became subject to the California Alien Land Law as well. With the Asiatic Barred Zone Act of 1917 preventing new immigration to the U.S. most Asian Indians left the America.
    Nativists objected the number of immigrants, because it would affect the traditional American values and the US continued to set limits on immigration as a result. By 1928, immigration had declined to about 300,000 and just over half a million new arrivals entered the US in the 1930’s. Those that were allowed to become citizens were forced to assimilate into American culture, leaving their cultural roots behind. Anti-immigrant sentiment peaked in the Sacco-Vanzetti case of 1921. Sacco and Vanzetti were two Italian immigrants charged with an April 1920 murder in Massachusetts. They were anarchists as well as immigrants, arousing frank hatred from the media and the judge in their case, who sentenced them to death. The case against Sacco and Vanzetti was circumstantial and poorly argued. The case was significant for its demonstration of conservative forces in America.
    Science: ThereThe anti-immigration policies only increased Nativist power in government and in society. By letting immigrants be described as “colored”, it allowed for violence such as the Ku Klux Klan to take advantage of the groups and blame them for murders, like the Sacco-Vanzetti case. It only reinforced the idea that even if immigrants assimilated, they’d never be accepted.
    SCIENCE

    were major
    Some Notable Events in the 1920’s:

    1929 Prince Louis-Victor Pierre Raymond de Broglie -discovery of the wave nature of electrons".
    The scientific accomplishments pretty much speak for themselves in regards to their effect on today’s society. Vitamins and anti-biotics were discovered, television and radio was invented, and discoveries in space would come together, to shape the future forever.
    SPORTS
    Like in the Gilded Age, sports were extremely popular as a pastime. After World War I, society resumed more leisure activities. Newspapers, the new radio, and movies all contributed to the boost of sports events as well. The publicity the sports events received led to the building of sports stadiums and steady salaries of the sports stars.

    Air Corps: The air arm steadily increased in size and strength while improving its administrative and operational position within the Navy. The period began under the leadership of a Director without authority to direct. It ended with a flourishing Bureau of Aeronautics. At the beginning, a small air detachment in each ocean fleet was proving itself effective under conditions at sea. At the end, three carriers were in full operation, patrol squadrons were performing scouting functions, and aircraft were regularly assigned to battleships and cruisers. Together these elements played important roles in the annual fleet war games. Improvements like radial air-cooled engines ,accurate bomb-sight, and folding wings enhanced the operating capability of carriers. Techniques like dive bombing, torpedo attack, scouting, spotting for gunfire and operating from advanced bases was established. Marine Corps expeditionary troops learned through experience the value of air support. The initial designation scheme specifically for attack aircraft was begun in 1926 when the U.S. Army Air Corps accepted a heavily armed version of the Douglas O-2 observation plane. The new plane was designated XA-2.The Douglas XA-2 was evaluated against the Curtiss A-3 Falcon and lost. The A-3 became the standard aircraft used by the U.S. Army Air Corps throughout the 1920s.The first of the monoplane attack aircraft (Fokker A-7) wouldn't appear until the early 1930s. Development during the 1920s was constrained by small budgets and the conservative views of the Army General staff. During the most of the 1920’s, the total offensive strength of the Air Service in the United States consisted of one pursuit, one attack, and one bombardment group. The formal training establishment took shape during the 1920’s, the service concentrated flying training in Texas. Technical schools for officers and enlisted men were at Chanute Field, Illinois. The Air Corps Tactical School trained officers to command higher units and taught the employment of military aviation. Other training centers: Air Corps Training Center in San Antonio, Texas(August of 1926) “West Point of the Air” in Randolph Field in Texas(June 1930), became the headquarters of the Air Corps Training Center.
    Navy: American policy accepted the premise that future wars with other major powers could be avoided and so maintained a minimum of defensive military strength, and promoted international peace. Reacting to a widely held belief that an arms race had contributed to the outbreak of World War I, the United States called for an international conference to consider the limitation of major types of armaments. The Washington Naval Conference temporarily checked the race for naval supremacy. It froze new capital-ship construction in the world’s great power countries for ten years. Limitations on individual capital-ship size and armament guaranteed that none of the three great naval powers could successfully launch a Pacific offensive as long as the powers respected the treaty. It also stopped the construction of naval facilities in the western Pacific. During 1928 the United States and France joined in drafting the Pact of Paris, through which many nations renounced war as an instrument of national policy. Thereafter the United States proclaimed that, if other powers did likewise, it would limit its armed forces to those necessary to maintain internal order and defend its national territory against aggression and invasion.
    The military decisions that were made after the first World War helped to create the Army, Navy and Air Force that we know of today. They instituted training schools, dive bombing and policies that are still seen in present day operations. If it wasn’t for the invention of airplanes, as well as machine guns, wars might be still conducted in balloons and with bombs.
    Women’s Rights
    In the 1920s women began to gain more respect in society and were slowly beginning to have more rights and become equal to the men. Women were considered to be the man’s property, they were required to live a simple and plain life, they were limited to very little rights, such as they weren’t able to work because they were required to fulfill household duties, or hold positions in politics since they did not have the proper education to do so, or vote. The biggest step towards women rights was the ratification of the 19th amendment in August of 1920 which gave women the right to vote. Even though the women were provided with the right to vote, they did not have much knowledge on politics and the government, therefore they would just vote for the party their husband voted for. But with the right to vote, it could be said that women’s thoughts and opinions began to count in society. However, not all the women were able to vote, like Native American women were not allowed to vote until another four years, in the year 1924. {http://soniajones.files.wordpress.com/2009/06/votes-women2.jpg}
