what time to be alive in the 20's by:khiyana davis-tibbs

The 20's was a time of great change (Innovation) because if it's, Great migration, women suffrage and prohibition.

The Great Migration (1916 to 1970)
"It occurred to me that no matter where I lived, geography could not save me."

The Great Migration was the movement of 6 million African-Americans out of the rural southern united states to the urban northeast, Midwest, and west that occurred between 1910 and 1970

"For every prohibition you create you also create an underground" (jello Biafra)

In the United States was a nationwide constitutional ban on the production, importation, transportation and sale of alcoholic beverages that remained in place from 1920 to 1933.

Women's Suffrage
we ask justice, we ask equality, we ask that all the civil and political rights that belong to citizens of the united states, be guaranteed to us and our daughters forever.( Susan B. Anthony) 1820 to 1906

The right of women to vote in elections. Limited voting rights were gained by women in Finland, Iceland, Sweden and some Australian colonies.

But most people may say that the 1920's was return to normalcy ( Conservatism / Traditions).
