Summary
What were Americans doing in the 1900s? Listening to phonographs, reading dime novels, watching vaudeville shows, and much more. From workers' rights to civil liberties, Americans protested injustice in the 1900s. They went on strike for higher pay and shorter working hours and founded the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People to combat racial violence.The decade's most influential people included President Theodore Roosevelt, activist and educator W. E. B. DuBois, women's suffrage leader Mary Chapman Catt, popular composer George M. Cohan, and aviation pioneers Wilbur and Orville Wright. They helped pave the way for a decade of political reforms and technological advances. From picket lines to child labor, from ragtime music to the dawn of motion pictures, read about this fascinating decade from start to finish
