Jazz Music 1920s
Jazz music out of New Orleans was the rage in the 1920s. Louis Armstrong, affectionately known as Satchmo, was known for his talents on the trumpet and cornet. Duke Ellington brought the world of jazz to light on the piano.
Both were very instrumental in establishing a music trend for an era in time that became known as the Roaring 20s.

The Roaring Twenties was a time of change for women. In 1920, the Nineteenth Amendment gave women the right to vote.
Gone went the sweetness of the long haired, proper Gibson Girl image and in the later part of the decade, the flapper girl appeared.
She was fresh and sassy with a short bob hairdo and boyish figure. The hemline was also shorter with this new style.
When people think of flapper girls, they usually associate them with the dance craze, The Charleston.

It was the 18th Amendment which established this. It was done as an effort to reduce alcohol consumption and raise moral values.
