"The Jazz Age"
In this chapter you learned about the Jazz Age. Through the age of "The Roaring Twenties" there were extreme aspects of policy like the Red Scare, the policy of isolationism, and prohibition. These contrasted with the new ‘liberated' woman, the flapper, the first movie with sound, and the Harlem Renaissance. It was in this movement where the music of Jazz was born and captured the age of the era.
