The 1920's were a return to normalcy by alexis williams

"Blood on the leaves and blood at the root, Black bodies swinging in the southern breeze."

This picture and quote helps prove my point because in the south they were against their slaves being free, If the slaves got caught doing something wrong punishment would be required with whipping and sometimes death. White people in the south did not care about of their slaves they were just things to them.

"It shall be unlawful for any teacher... to teach any theory that denies they story of the divine creation of man as taught in the bible, and to teach instead that man has descended from a lower order of animals."

this is a return to normalcy because the society didn't want to their children to know what happened with evolution they wanted them to learn the bible.

"it has been pointed out that women should not pass laws on matters of war and peace, since no woman can do military duty."

This is a return to normalcy because women were fighting for their right to vote.

This is a picture of a white man throwing away a paper saying jazz time and this signifies African Americans and jazz is a for of their music that they express

In some ways the 1920's were a time of change like the great migration when African Americans could go to the north and they had a chance to express their selves by music and plays.
