Clapp com for the old shorter,version of this video click here,American Indians lived in tribes,scattered across the new world and,adapted to their environments then,Europeans came over they sent over crops,animals and diseases such as smallpox in,a cultural diffusion example known as,the Columbian Exchange the Spanish,conquistadors forced natives into a,forced labor system known as encomienda,the Spanish intermarried at times and,spread Christianity mostly for the,colonial period though you need to know,about the English settlers first,indentured servants came over to farm,tobacco in a place called Jamestown,dont get confused with slaves they came,over later and were part of the middle,passage of the triangular trade they had,no rights and had an early rebellion,known as the Stono rebellion when they,hope to get freedom by going to Spanish,Florida,as for indentured servant Nathaniel,bacon resented the governor in Jamestown,and revolted partially over class,struggle in New England there were,pilgrims who were separatists Puritans,in Massachusetts Bay were non,separatists who wanted to purify the,English church under John Winthrop they,established a city upon a hill one,Puritan to know was Anne Hutchinson she,challenged the churchs Authority and,was banished from the colony the,Puritans werent very tolerant however,some in the colonial era were William,Penns Quaker Pennsylvania had no,established Church Maryland had an act,of toleration for all Christians and,Roger Williams establish Rhode Island,which would be religiously tolerant,people werent going to church as much,in the new world so the halfway covenant,eased the qualifications for membership,a century later the Great Awakening was,a religious revival led by George,Whitefield and Jonathan Edwards those,new lights sure brought a motion to,religion roots of democracy can be found,in the colonies as well as a Mayflower,Compact promoted direct democracy the,House of Burgesses was a representative,democracy the Fundamental Orders of,Connecticut presented a constitution,in New York there was a Zenger trial,which gave freedom of the press everyone,in the thirteen colonies answered to the,British and helped their mother country,get stronger by shipping resources back,home in a system called mercantilism,Britain only cared about their economic,bottom line so they didnt rule too,harshly in a policy called salutary,neglect salutary neglect ended after the,French and Indian War after the French,and Indian War the British firmed their,grip over the English colonies in North,America they prevented movement to the,West with the proclamation of 1763 and,of course they tax the colonies to pay,off their armies expenses from the,French and Indian War know this timeline,of the Revolutionary War causes Sugar,Act Stamp Act Townsend acts Boston,Massacre Boston Tea Party Intolerable,Acts shots fired at Lexington and,Concord inspired by Thomas Paines,Common Sense in the Declaration of,Independence which listed grievances,against King George the third the,volunteer colonial army fought the,revolution against the British after the,turning point at Saratoga the colonists,gained French support and won the war,after they drew up the Articles of,Confederation which was weak although,the Articles of Confederation were,successful in paving the way for States,in the West with some land ordinances,overall they werent very strong they,had no central court system no efficient,taxation system and no executive branch,they also provided for no army hence,Shays rebellion got out of control it,was time for a constitution the great,compromise worked out the issue of,representation between the populated and,not so populated states and the,three-fifths compromise figured out how,slaves would be accounted for in such a,representation the Constitution provided,for checks and balances those are,important to know after Hamilton J and,Madison wrote the Federalists and the,anti-federalists were a short of Bill of,Rights the first 10 amendments for the,Constitution the Constitution was,ratified in 1788 note though the Bill of,Rights which protected liberties went,into effect in 1791 so the government,was young in fragile thats why George,Washington wanted neutrality to be the,foreign policy Alexander Hamilton came,up with a new financial plan that,involved paying up debts and sponsoring,a National Bank he said,for today loose interpretation of the,Constitution and implied powers and was,fine with Congress using the elastic,clause unlike Shays rebellion which got,out of hand,the nations army now with a strong,Constitution on its side put down the,Whiskey Rebellion in 1794 Washington,gave a farewell address preaching,neutrality and warning against political,parties no this sequence of events the,Jay Treaty upset the French so we sent,over diplomats who were nearly,blackmailed into seeing another diplomat,in the XYZ affair next thing you know of,quasi-war with France occurred though,shots were fired the Alien and Sedition,Acts were passed during this time to,limit civil liberties that anger,Jefferson and Madison who wrote the,Kentucky and Virginia resolution saying,that the states should declare the Act,null and void Jefferson he acted like a,federalist as president and bought,Louisiana with the treaty oh he also,supported the Embargo Act which hurt the,north by cutting off trade at this time,John Marshall increased the power of the,Supreme Court his decision supported,federal dominance and in Marbury vs.,Madison he established judicial review,by deciding that an act of Congress was,unconstitutional well sure enough,because of impressment we fought the war,of 1812 though the United States didnt,win they also didnt lose so really not,much happened with it one Warhawk named,Henry Clay wanted an American system,which would make the United States,self-sufficient around the same time,President Monroes doctrine said that,Europeans should stop colonizing in the,Western Hemisphere,well Andrew Jackson became president and,appointed his friends in a system known,as the spoil system he also vetoed the,National Banks recharter removed Native,Americans west of the Mississippi and,enforced a tariff as for that tariff of,abominations the scary-looking guy named,John C Calhoun wrote the South Carolina,exposition and protest stating that the,tariff should be declared null and void,South Carolina actually nullified a,tariff years later but Henry Clay found,out a compromise as usual during,Jacksons time there was a market,revolution where textile factories went,up in Lowell Massachusetts railroads,increased and Eli Whitney invented the,interchangeable parts method also the,Erie Canal linked upstate New York to,the West,a trade you can never get too many great,awakening so another one happened in the,burned over district of upstate New York,around 1830 it was led by Charles,Grandison finis it led to new reforms,such as temperance abolition and utopian,communities such as Brook farm women,wanted rights to and demanded a,declaration of sentiments at the Seneca,Falls convention in New York in 1848,this guy named Horace Mann man did he,love education also at this time there,were these guys called transcendentalist,Emerson and Thoreau reflected,introspectively and loved nature in the,antebellum period there was sectionalism,or strife between parts of the country,this helped cause that Civil War during,manifest destiny the United States,acquired all of this territory much of,it came after winning the Mexican War,but should these states be slave or free,if you ask David Wilmot he would say,free at least in all of the new Mexican,land there were three compromises to,know regarding slavery the Missour

The United States in World War I (US History EOC Review – USHC 5.4)

hey there students welcome back to,intensive review and in this segment Im,going to talk about you you sh see five,point four focusing on World War one,alright so youve got all kinds of stuff,here fancy language all of that kind of,stuff but essentially World War one now,as far as the causes of World War one,now this is going on in Europe this is a,European war what are the causes the,Alliance system and nationalism now,there are other causes but as far as for,your curriculum guides for this exam the,Alliance system and nationalism and,knowing that the you know these,alliances the bench Claire effect yada,yada yada and then youve got the,assassination of Archduke Franz,Ferdinand all right who was assassinated,by a Serbian nationalist in 1914 and,these alliances are invoked and it leads,to a full-scale war that Europe is just,everybodys war with everybody to speak,of and all of that so what does this,have to do with us now keep in mind that,although the United States has started,to dabble in imperialism we still have,yet to get involved in a European war,all right keep in mind that really when,you think about the big stick foreign,policy is that getting us closer to,Europe or farther away from them you,know we dont want you over here all,right so really the big stick foreign,policy is a continuation of 19th century,avoidance of European conflicts so what,does this have to do with us and,Americans generally wanted to keep out,and from 1914 to 1917 the United States,maintained a foreign policy of,neutrality that we steer clear of,permanent alliances missing out on all,that fun so how did we get mixed up in,this,provocations there are three of them and,we can call on our friend or the,Explorer to help us out cruise ship,telegram submarine one more time cruise,ship telegram submarine now the cruise,ship the sinking of the unit of the,Lusitania,by German u-boats all right the sinking,of the Lusitania which was a cruise ship,now keep in mind that while there was a,lot of public outcry because of this,this did not get us involved in the war,okay in fact when Woodrow Wilson is,running for re-election in 1916 his,slogan is he kept us out of war that,there were some people clamoring for war,after the sinking of the Lusitania,Wilson did not make it happen so,remember that the Mexicans are still a,little bit irked that we took half their,country and the Germans know that and,the Germans get in touch with Mexico in,the form of the Zimmermann note ok the,so-called Zimmermann telegram and what,happens here is the Germans say Mexico,if youll go to war with the United,States if the United States gets,involved in a war with us if you will,attack the United States we will give,you Texas and New Mexico and Arizona I,dont know how they plan to deliver on,that its really kind of laughable when,you think about it but that was what,they were thinking and so there is the,telegram and also in this telegram the,German state their intention to resume a,policy of unrestricted submarine warfare,which they previously abandoned in order,to come acid ISA in order to keep the,United States out all right,so yall this door has got me a speaking,espanol all right so anyway remember the,provocations again cruise ship telegram,submarine little off on my slides there,I press the wrong button but anyway you,get the point now so wilsons war,message the direct calls the german,policy of unrestricted submarine warfare,all right but Wilson said that while,were at this we are going to make the,world safe for democracy because,democracy is the end all be all right,grab your gas masks,lets go vamanos people all right so,1917 the Selective Service Act keep in,mind that this was one of four times,where there was a draft in US history,the Civil War World War One World War,two and the,not propaganda all right lets take a,quick look at war propaganda now first,of all we have four points for this,first of all recruitment for soldiers,sailors and nurses then we want people,to finance the war all right we want,people to finance the war through buying,Liberty Bonds then we want to conserve,resources and finally to dehumanize the,enemy all right so those are your four,things the four elements of the,propaganda campaign and you see here you,are dehumanizing the enemy here that,here is the enemy who abuses women which,side of the you know which side of the,window,are you okay so are you the guy thats,out there going war or are you the guy,inside appealing to manhood all right,once again we see here you can learn a,trade or something like that if I were a,man Id join the Navy so once again if,youre a real man then go ahead and,enjoy even a dog enlist I mean this dog,showed up and volunteered so you know,not you and you know become a trained,nurse the 19th amendment keep in mind,womens suffrage happened in the wake of,World War one 1919 so womens,participation in though in the war,thats you know has a bearing on this,daddy bought me a Liberty loan we see it,here the Liberty Bonds all that kind of,stuff if you think that you know I dont,have enough money for a Liberty Bond,well this guy died all right,so you could afford a Liberty bond say,food meat and wheat okay keep in mind,but unamerican each state during the war,as American a stake is in most cases no,wheat either remember meat and wheat so,did you know cottage cheese has more,protein than like all this other stuff,it doesnt matter I want meat but during,wartime Sun patriotic to eat too much,meat plant Victory Garden yadda yadda,Sheep clubs wood truck will send sheep,on the White House lawn anyway I think,youre getting the points all right,heres the sheet all right toad you too,and then dehumanizing the enemy calling,him the Hun and that,sort of thing and portraying him as an 8,as a mad brute now the espionage and,Sedition Acts we talked about the alien,Sedition Acts these were very similar,that there were a lot of laws that were,passed here to outlaw anti-war speech,discouraging the purchase of war bonds,dahhh opposing the draft and all of that,kind of stuff that could undermine the,war effort the other day I saw somebody,with a front license plate with a German,flag on it which during World War one,this was illegal if someone were to,display a German flag it was illegal so,we see here that the Constitution is,often ignored by government during,wartime Eugene debbs foot jail for,resisting the draft and hotdogs before,of World War 1 they were more commonly,called frankfurters you sometimes hear,like about Franks right okay,frankfurters we dont want to say that,because were at war with Germany the,German language used to be a very,popular language to be taught in schools,in the United States keep in mind that,Germans make up the single largest group,of you know ancestry claims in the,United States but you barely see the,German language taught over here thats,largely a result of the world wars,before that it was taught quite a bit as,I said a crime to display an enemy flag,if someone were at war with so the,artist is assigned Germany surrenders,and they surrender on 11-11 at 11:00,a.m. and thats why on Veterans Day we,observed like you know a moment of,silence typically at 11:00 a.m. so now,on to Wilsons fourteen points now the,principles of Wilsons fourteen points,were not going to go through all 14 of,them but lets look at five principles,here,first of all freedom of the Seas all,right what were trying to do here is,keep a war from happening again so each,of these is looking at one of the causes,so if you look at the arms race before,World War one and also that neutral,nations such as the United States should,be able to use the Seas without,interference then reduction of arms the,arms race once again that people were,building up before the war and after the,or we need to reduce arms open treaty,negotiations a lot of secret agreements,were made before and during the war,Wilson says we dont need these secret,agreement agreements self-determination,of peoples

The Thirteen Colonies (Colonial America – US History EOC Review – USHC 1.1)

hey there students welcome to u.s.,history EOC intensive review this is our,first of many segments and well be,going through all of US history and,trying to get reviewed up for the EOC,and were going to start at the very,beginning with standard 1.1 and that has,to do with colonial America and first of,all lets look at our motives for,colonizing first of all religious,motives now thats going to be focused,in New England people going for,religious motives keep in mind that one,of the biggest things that youre going,to have to do for this segment of the,exam is to differentiate between the New,England colonies the middle colonies and,the southern colonies so religious,motives and the other motive for,settlement would be economic and the,farther south you go the more youre,going to see people settling for,economic motives whereas New England,its going to be more religious and in,the middle colonies youre going to have,a little bit of both and so lets take a,quick look at the 13 colonies first of,all the New England colonies and really,kind of Massachusetts would be a,representative colony theyre the,mid-atlantic colonies or sometimes,called the middle colonies depending on,what exam youre taking and what they,choose to use I would say that,Pennsylvania would be a representative,colony for the mid-atlantic or the,middle colonies and then finally the,southern colonies colonies such as,Virginia and South Carolina would be,representative representative of these,colonies and so first of all lets take,a quick look at religion New England,this is where people settled for,religious freedom now keep in mind that,religious freedom does not necessarily,mean religious toleration it doesnt,mean religious freedom in the way that,we think of it today but its people who,were coming from England Puritans and,separatists coming into New England so,that they could build their city on a,hill so to speak the mid-atlantic,colonies you have a limited amount of,diversity now keep in mind that Maryland,was for Catholics then Pennsylvania,founded by Quakers and really kind of,for everybody and,in some places like New York and New,Jersey you have established churches but,keep in mind that there is going to be,more diversity and tolerance in the,middle colonies than anywhere else,and finally the southern colonies which,may strike you as odd that today the,south is one of the more religious,sections of the country but during the,colonial period religion was not really,a motive for colonization its really,more all about the Benjamins this is,just for money and so you think about,the pilgrim so to speak,these English separatists these,Calvinists that came over so that they,could practice their own religion they,were religious dissidents people who,were practicing a religion that at the,time was illegal in England at the time,of this religious uniformity under the,Stuarts so these are the type of people,that settled in New England and the,Massachusetts Bay Colony these Puritans,who were led by John Winthrop John,Winthrop is someone that you could see,mentioned or quoted on an EOC test and,John Winthrop was the one who said that,we were building a city on a hill and,this comes from the Bible now of course,its also been used by a lot of,politicians predominantly Republican,politicians Ronald Reagan like to use,this symbolism Mitt Romney did in his,2012 campaign as well and then keep in,mind that this was not a place for,religious toleration,there were people such as Roger Williams,and Anne Hutchinson who each in their,own way advocated for a degree of,religious toleration now both of these,people were exiled from the,Massachusetts colony Roger Williams went,on to found Rhode Island and then Anne,Hutchinson went over there as well and,then she and a lot of her children were,massacred out there in the wilderness,but thats another story,then we move on to the mid-atlantic,colonies where we have a limited amount,of religious toleration and diversity as,Ive mentioned you have in Pennsylvania,the Quakers now these were nonviolent,people these were pacifist and they,believed that nobody should ever be full,to do anything theyre called the,Society of Friends even today and the,friends are not about forcing you to do,anything so everyone should have freedom,of conscience and then in Maryland which,was founded by Lord Baltimore this was,supposed to be a haven for Catholics and,Lord Baltimore actually proclaimed,Christian toleration for any Trinitarian,Christian they could settle in Maryland,and they could practice their religion,freely now if you werent a Trinitarian,Christian then you die but this was,pretty progressive toleration for the,time and then we move on to the southern,colonies where the Church of England was,largely the established church but at,the same time these people werent,moving there for religious reasons they,were moving there for economic reasons,which well talk about in just a bit so,remember religion first of all religious,freedom quote/unquote in New England and,then religious diversity in the middle,colonies to some extent and in the,southern colonies religion was not,really a motive for colonization and so,moving on to society its very important,that we know how to compare and contrast,New England society with southern,society we could get a question about,that on your test and what were looking,at in New England is a more egalitarian,society where the clergy are the,dominant class now egalitarian that,comes from the same root as equality,this in French it is a gala tape or,however you would pronounce that,properly in French meanwhile the,southern society was very hierarchical,instead of the clergy being the dominant,class youve got a dominant class of,landowners and this creates a society,where people know their place where,people outrank others and everything,kind of fits together like that and the,southern colonies the economy was driven,by Plantation slavery and this of course,adds to this,social hierarchy when slaves are,introduced now of course at first this,work is done by indentured servants but,in the 17th century you see that,plantation slavery is established as the,dominant agricultural labor force,by the end of that century and lets,take a look at English political,traditions alright first of all youve,got the Magna Carta and second youve,got the Parliament now Im going to talk,about this a little bit more in the next,segment but its good to go ahead and,introduce that because this appears in,the in the guide at this point and also,it informs us about the traditions in,colonial America,so the Magna Carta and Parliament the,Magna Carta symbolizing taxation by,consent and the Parliament being a,representative body so we look at,English political traditions we see that,first the English have given us popular,government government that comes from,the people that the people have a say in,the government secondly we have,traditions of representative government,that we get from the English so these,twin traditions of popular government,and representative government and in New,England you see that popular government,is being manifested in the form of town,meetings you can still see presidential,candidates that are going to New,Hampshire that participate in town,meetings and these are egalitarian,theyre Democratic they take votes by,the majority if you think about the,Mayflower Compact thats where they get,together and they say okay were going,to commit ourselves to majority rule and,that sort of thing now meanwhile in the,southern colonies the House of Burgesses,in Virginia is representative of this,pun intended and this is a,representative body and is pretty,aristocratic because the landowners are,represented here more than anyone else,so the landowners are dominant here they,are making decisions but keep in mind we,still have this tradition of,representative government in the,colonies now lets move on to the,economy now first of all youve got New,England which was

American Imperialism (US History EOC Review – USHC 5.1)

hey there students welcome back to,intensive review and in this segment we,are going to take a look at American,imperialism u.s. HC 5.1 standard 5 deals,largely with foreign policy so we need,to understand that traditional American,foreign policy prior to 1898 the,spanish-american war was a policy of,non-intervention or what a lot of people,would call isolationism remember that,Jefferson and Washington talked about,not entering into entangling alliances,to focus on trade and not get involved,with the rest of the world to really,focus on ourselves and we were more,focused on expanding were more focused,on manifest destiny throughout most of,the 19th century now this is America,then ok I mean its just yeah alright,wasnt that big and manifest destiny,eventually we accomplished that and,after manifest destinies accomplished,what next because Americans like to grow,Americans are very greedy people for,better for worse and in 1867 we,purchased Alaska which this was really,the last piece of available land in,North America so what now so bored,sounds like people that have been going,through intensive review for two days,huh so what do we do now you werent,supposed to respond back okay so we can,totally do this like heres the British,Empire its like the British can do it,why cant we do it and so lets contrast,American foreign policy in the 19th in,the 20th century the 19th century you,might refer to this as isolationism keep,in mind thats a loaded term but its a,term that is seems most likely to show,up on your exam and a policy of,neutrality as Washington would have,called it where we avoid conflicts with,other nations whenever possible and then,theres the 20th century a policy of,intervention where we engage with other,nations in order to promote the national,interests of the United States excuse me,so we look at motivations for Imperial,there are four that are in your,curriculum guide that youll want to,know first of all social Darwinism now,this is sort of an oversimplification a,lot of things in this in this curriculum,are but you know Europeans did believe,that they were Europeans and Americans,believe that their civilizations were,superior and so youre looking at,inferior peoples were out competing them,yada-yada survival of the fittest here,okay where you see that even though we,might have said that okay were trying,to be benevolent and all that kind of,stuff you know doesnt look like its so,much an expansion of markets this is a,big deal keep in mind the,Transcontinental Railroad was about,creating a national market this is about,creating an international market and,expanding even farther out into the,world crop prices stabilized as a result,of imperialism because now we have more,places to sell our crops more markets to,send them and more trade in general here,is a cartoon that says heres before US,imperialism and here is after US,imperialism now of course you can see a,bit of you know pro-american bias there,we make it look like everybodys wealthy,and all of that kind of stuff probably,not the case now also to spread,Christianity and Western civilization,that there are a lot of people who were,missionaries a lot of people filler,missionaries going to different,countries and that sort of thing so to,spread Christianity and Western,civilization we all might have read the,poem before in some class or another the,white mans burden you know where,Rudyard Kipling is encouraging the,United States to take up the white mans,burden and then go so you see there the,white mans burden carrying these,inferior peoples up to the pinnacle of,civilization naval bases all right so,you see here I believe that is the USS,South Carolina before it was like,scrapped after World War one if Im not,mistaken but you know weve got were,building a navy at this time so we need,bases we want to expand as a naval power,there was this guy at Mei Han who wrote,the influence,C power upon history in 1890 and the,conclusion here is that great nations,must have great navies and of course we,go into Hawaii in 1898 and what were,looking for there chiefly is the Pearl,Harbor Naval Base if you control Hawaii,youve got really its kind of a halfway,point of any route through the Pacific,so this was largely a strategic rather,than an economic acquisition on the part,of the United States so keep in mind,that what you see here is America,projecting its power,all right during this age of imperialism,were projecting American power and,American influence but keep in mind too,that the roots of our foreign,intervention are going to be resentment,that there are a lot of people in these,countries that are imperialize by the,United States that are going to,thoroughly resent us and thats going to,take a lot of effort to undo so that,gets us through five point one and in,the next segment we are going to,specifically talk about the,spanish-american war see you in a bit,[Music],[Applause],[Music],[Applause],[Music]

The Roaring Twenties: Part I (US History EOC Review – USHC 6.1)

hey there students welcome back to,intensive review in this segment were,going to review standard 6 yeah,standard 6 starting with standard 6,point 1 the 1920s something funny over,there yeah I know,alright Ive been doing this for two,days straight but anyway lets keep,going,first of all when we look at the 1920s,and the economy and all of that kind of,stuff first of all a booming economy,with unprecedented economic growth but,the only problem is is that the gap,widens alright we think about the gap,between the haves and the have-nots all,right that these gaps get even bigger,during this time and so the losers in,this case alright weve got two groups,of losers here weve got the farmers and,the laborers all right in the 1920s that,the market for agricultural products is,not great and union membership declines,in the 1920s this is a great time for,mass production Henry Ford doesnt,necessarily invent the concept of the,assembly line but he perfects it and,Henry Fords assembly line makes,production more efficiently start to see,the fruits of progressivism and,progressive you know scientific,management and all of that kind of stuff,and so you know its more efficient but,it cuts the need for skilled laborers,and automobiles are becoming prevalent,the 1920s all right this is the so,called decade of the automobile the Ford,Model T you can have it in any color so,long as its black and then we also have,radios and refrigerators things that,people didnt really have before this,time that you would have a radio in your,home you have something keep the food,cold and all of that kind of stuff,things that we take for granted now I,mean who listens to the radio anymore,dead silence okay we had one all right,two maybe all right so as far as,electrical appliances all right and keep,in mind that before the 1920s people,didnt have electrical appliances in,their homes by and large and that sort,of thing so this is the decade of,electricity,so lots of good stuff the vacuum cleaner,all of that kind of stuff and you know,all the things that we think about in,kitchens and you know you look at all,this stuff and its like wow thats a,lot of appliances and the installment,plan ladies and gentlemen now you see,here from the 1920s why are your house,for electricity so you havent had,electricity yet and we would like to,wire that for you now dont worry its,expensive but you can pay for it in,installments and this is going to kind,of come back to bite everybody at the,end of the 1920s but this whole concept,of no money down and that sort of thing,okay so weve got this three $53.50 now,that means probably about $75 in todays,standards but you dont have to pay for,all that at once you can do that in a,you know in installments buy now pay,later thats kind of the you know the,mantra or whatever of the 1920s buy now,pay later so Americans if you couldnt,afford to buy new appliances you buy,them on the installment plan and the,result is debt all right that I mean,thats what happens when you borrow,money to buy a bunch of stuff at one,time you were going to be indebted and,when we take a look at african-americans,during the 1920s now first of all you,need to know about the great migration,after the Civil War,very few freed men and women left the,south all right so you know at that time,but World War one created a lot of,opportunities for enterprising,individuals who wanted to get a job up,north look into educational,opportunities for their children and,such so they are searching for jobs,youve got you know push factors and,pull factors now when you see this like,as far as in 1900 nearly all of the,black population was in the south so,theyre going to northern cities looking,for employment opportunities such as,being on the railroad or working a steel,mill or something like that and also to,escape things there were push factors,escaping lynching and so theres the,black percentage the population 1900,when we go,to 1990 you see that that population is,much more spread out as a result,partially of the great migration where,african-american families are moving,south moving north and west from the,south and then jazz music becomes very,popular during this time and very,popular with white audiences now of,course a lot of these people like Louis,Armstrong and Duke Ellington and others,they would play for segregated audiences,but these white audiences really like,specially young white audiences like,this music that originated in the black,community and keep in mind that jazz on,the radio you know its kind of breaking,down this cultural barrier that you,dont have to actually be somewhere to,hear music you can hear music in your,home and keep in mind that racial,stereotypes are persisting alright that,one of the right radio shows she would,had this times the Gold Dust twins and,this was a detergent type thing that you,see a lot of these representations,theres a movie some of yall might have,seen any of yall seen that movie si si,Confederate States of America its like,its this just really ridiculous,hypothetical about if the South had won,the Civil War,and it shows all of these very offensive,commercials and at the end of the movie,spoiler alert,alright you know like weve never heard,of this movie anyway its okay its on,Netflix okay but the thing is at the end,of the movie you find out and Im not,endorsing the movie or anything like,that but you find out that every ad that,was shown in the movie was actually,based on a real ad that had run like in,the 1920s or the 1930s or some time like,that so keep that in mind that this,doesnt this jazz music doesnt,necessarily lead to you know any serious,furtherance iz in racial equality keep,in mind the most successful silent film,ever was Birth of a Nation released in,1915 and this promoted racial,stereotypes promoted the KKK is,something that was heroic and then,theres the Harlem Renaissance African,American,intellectual movement emphasizing,literature poetry art and such now,Langston Hughes would be the most,prominent artist of that time okay who,was a writer and a poet and that wraps,up six point one in the next segment,well be looking at six point two,looking at social change in the 1920s,and all of that kind of stuff hope,youll join us see you in a bit,[Music]
