Speakeasies & Jazz Age

 

 

 

 

So what are Speakeasies? Well if you didn’t get a clear understanding from my earlier research speakeasies was an establishment in the United States.  They were located in many rural towns. Throughout the period known as Prohibition it last through 1920-1933 and some states had a longer time period.  The Americans also came up with ways to avoid the law by using hip flasks, false books, coconut shells, hot water bottles and garden hoses to transport illegal liquor. Even though the law was being broke in many places, there were good things coming from it. The bars of the early twentieth century were mainly for the men to hang out with each other but they allowed women to enter too. Jazz also had an upraised during this time. The speakeasies provided places for musicians to play and all had a good time. Jazz played a significant part in the prohibition period and influenced pop culture long afterwards. Speakeasies were hidden sections of an establishment that were used to illegally sell alcoholic products during Prohibition. Some speakeasies were similar to today’s clubs, as there was singing and jazz performances. To enter a speakeasy, one person would need to say a password to the doorperson so that the doorperson would know whether or not they were really secret agents.

 

 

 

 

Who started jazz music? African Americans were mainly the original founders of it, but as the years went on, it expanded and over time the middle-class white Americans took over. In the 1920s youth used the impact of jazz to change the traditional culture of previous generations. This youth rebellion made dances such as the Charleston popular among younger generation. Prohibition failed One of the primary reasons was that there just was not enough money, or police power to stop illegal places like speakeasies from popping up. I think there is another reason. Corruption has a lot to do with the reason why prohibition ended up failing. The prohibition in the 1920s was a period in the American history that saw a legal ban on manufacture, sale and transportation of alcohol. The prohibition in the 1920s in America is also known as the Noble Experiment. The Eighteenth Amendment to the United States led to nationalized ban on liquor from 1919 to 1933. This era was one of the most famous as well as infamous political experiment.
