During the 1920s, the Eighteenth Amendment prohibited the manufacture, sale, or transport of alcoholic beverages during a period called Prohibition. “Drys” were people who believed that the prohibition of alcohol would curb crime and reinforce traditionalist values. “Wets” opposed Prohibition on the grounds that it restricted personal freedom and bred crime (through bootlegging).

During the 1920s, a new youth culture started to emerge thanks to increased public education and other social organizations for young people. Young people believed that the previous generations were being repressive toward their more modern culture, and embodied this spirit in the “flapper” image. Adults, meanwhile, felt that the youth were reckless and immoral, particularly when it came to dating and sex.

Science &

Religion

(Part II of DBQ packet)

During the 1920s, traditionalists and modernists clashed over whether science and religion could co-exist. Modernists embraced science, and in particular Charles Darwin’s theories of evolution and natural selection. Traditionalists opposed Darwin’s theories and believed in creationism (the belief that God created the universe). This debate was played out in the Scopes Trial in 1925.

During the 1920s, thousands of African Americans moved to northern industrial cities in search of jobs during a period called the Great Migration. This caused tension with northern workers, and erupted in riots in cities such as St. Louis. Meanwhile, the KKK grew in membership as it called for a defense of rural, traditionalist values, in addition to racial discrimination. It dominated local and state politics throughout various parts of the country.
