2 Paragraphs

 

The 1920’s or also known as “the roaring 20’s” improved urban, suburban and rural life out tremendously. First, cars helped out for the people that could afford it. Cars also hurt some people. For example: trains and trolleys. Credit helped a lot of people that couldn’t afford cars. Credit let them pay on it everyone other month or so until its paid off.  The Harlem Renaissance was a substantial social change for the African Americans. African Americans started to show their talents off in Harlem. Women started working jobs in the 1920’s as well. Women also started showing off more of their bodies. Immigrants were being looked at in a discriminating matter. Sacco and Vanzetti were said to be accused because of discrimination. The roaring 20’s will always be remembered in history.

 

Daily lives of the average American were improved because of the roaring 20’s. Transportation was improved by the Model T car. Transportation was not trains anymore, it was cars. Suburban areas grew so that people didn’t have to live near the city or businesses. The Cars helped people get to their suburban homes and back to work the next day.  Immigrants were being let into the U.S and not being trusted. This led to a fear of communist, also known as the red Scare. Women that  were working provided more money to spend for the family. This led to more goods and wants demanded. Jazz Music was getting popular, and it was made by African Americans. Jazz began to be played in speakeasies. The Daily Lives of Americans were helped and hurt socially and economically.

Devonte Wright's insight:

Annotations: Vanzetti was writing Mrs. Evans a letter off appreciation. He talks about how he appreciates her confidence in his innocence. He is kind of shooken up because he has never been in prison before. he doesnt know wat to do. He kind of just talks about everything he likes or knows because he isnt sure of his death date. He says he is innocent. He says that him being put to death is abbominium.

Devonte Wright's insight:

Annotations: This was presented in 1921. This document shows the unfairness of the Sacco and Vanzetti Trial. Many opposed the trial and stated that they were being accused because they are italian immigrants. THe two men avowed the overthrow of capitalism. The defense were saying that the men are being falsly accused. The two men got the "chair". Europe reacted not so good about this situation.
