14  Answer the ACES on your own. This will count as an assessment grade so please take it seriously.

15  Economic: The “Neo-Imperialism” of the 19 th century was the result of capitalism. Colonies provided raw materials for industrial production, markets for manufactured goods, and cheap labor. Lenin called imperialism the “monopoly stage of capitalism.”  Strategic: The Great Powers (Britain, France, Germany, and the U.S) secured colonies in order to protect their interests abroad and enhance their geo- political influence. For example, Egypt was important to the British because the Suez Canal provided the shortest route to India. Other countries scrambled to acquire their own colonies to compete with the British. Colonial adventures might also unify a nation in a common goal.

16  Social Darwinism: Herbert Spenser adapted Charles Darwin’s theory of natural selection to human social relations. Spenser coined the phrase “survival of the fittest” to describe how “superior” peoples (the fittest) should rule the less powerful, or “inferior” people.  Civilizing Mission: The more “advanced” people had a duty to bring the benefits of their higher culture, including Christianity, education, industry, and modern technology.

36  What do you know about the 1920s?

37 As you are watching the clip on the 1920s, please fill in the graphic organizer. Our Century Boom to Bust


39  During the 1920s, African Americans set new goals for themselves as they moved north to the nation’s cities. This migration showed a changing attitude towards themselves – best captured by the phrase – “Black is beautiful.”

40  The time period between 1910 and 1920 was referred as the Great Migration. Hundreds of thousands of African Americans uprooted from their homes in the South to move to the BIG cities in the North. By the end of the decade, 5.2 million of the nation’s 12 million AA – over 40% - lived in cities.


42  Founded in 1901, The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) urged AA to protest racial violence. W. E. B. DuBois

43  James Weldon Johnson a poet, lawyer, & NAACP executive secretary fought for legislation to protect AA rights.  One such legislation was the anti-lynching bills. Though none passed Congress. Gradually the number of lynching dropped. This represented the new, more militant voice of African Americans.

44  Many AA found their voice in the NAACP. Marcus Garvey, an immigrant from Jamaica, believed that AA should build a separate society. His more radical message of black pride aroused the hopes of many.

45 1914 –Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA) Founded 1918 –He appealed to AA with a combination of public speaking, meetings, parades and message of pride. He encouraged his followers to return to Africa, help native people there throw off white oppressors, and build a mighty nation. This struck a chord in many AA, as well as blacks in the Caribbean and Africa. Declined in the mid-20s when he was convicted of mail fraud and jailed.



48  Many AA moved to Harlem, a neighborhood on the Upper West Side of New York’s Manhattan Island. By the 1920s, Harlem became the world’s largest black urban community with residents from the South, West Indies, Cuba, Puerto Rico, and Haiti.

49  Like other neighborhoods, it suffered from the problems of Urbanization such as overcrowding, unemployment, and poverty.  BUT, this was all over shadowed by the flowing of creativity called the Harlem Renaissance, a literary and artistic movement celebrating AA culture.

50  The Harlem Renaissance was a literary movement led by well-educated, middle-class AA who expressed a NEW pride in the AA experience.  Celebrated their heritage and wrote with defiance and poignancy about being black in a white world.

51  Explain the Harlem Renaissance.

52  Claude McKay – a novelist, poet, and Jamaican immigrant urged AA to resist prejudice and discrimination.

53  Langston Hughes was the movement’s best-known poet. His poems described the difficult lives of working- class AA.

54  Zora Neale Hurston portrayed the lives of poor, unschooled Southern blacks.


56  By the 1920s, AA had won a large following in the performing arts.  tenor Roland Hayes as a concert singer  Ethel Waters as a singer and actress on Broadway Musical Africana  Paul Robeson as a dramatic actor

57  Jazz was born in the early 20 th century in New Orleans when ragtime and vocal blues were joined to form a new sound. Joe “King” Oliver and his Creole Jazz Band carried the sound north.

58  Cab Calloway popularized “scat” or improvised jazz singing using sounds instead of words.

59  Bessie Smith, a blues singer, was the outstanding vocalist of the decade. She recorded on AA labels produced by major companies. By 1927, she was the highest paid AA artist in the world.

60  The Harlem Renaissance represented a portion of the great social and cultural changes that swept through America in the ’20s. This period was known for economic prosperity, new ideas, changing values, and personal freedom as well as developments in art, literature, and music.

61  Most of the social changes were lasting, the economic boom was short lived.

62  Read from “When the Negro Was in Vogue” by Langston Hughes as well as Louis Armstrong and answer the questions that follow. Please hand in.

63  Complete the worksheet for 1920s slang.

64 Open Note 1920’s Assessment When you are finished pick up the web on the Booming Economy of the 1920’s. This is the lead in to the Great Depression.

65  What is an economic depression?

66  Complete the worksheet on the stock market. Fill out only the chart. Per Share High on 9/3/29Value of 100 Shares Per Share Low on 10/29/29 Value of 100 Shares Auburn Auto Electric Auto-Lite Brooklyn Union Gas Purity Bakeries Montgomery Ward Radio Corporation White Sewing Machine Total Value

68 Complete the questions as you watch the clip. Please make sure you watch all 3 clips. Stormy Weather Hand in the questions when you are finished.

69 Why did the Great Depression happen?

70  Read the handout on the economic episodes of the Great Depression. As you read, complete the questions. These will need to be handed in when you are finished.

71 How did a mild recession turn into the Great Depression?

72  Inflation  A general upward movement in price of goods and services in an economy. Prices of individual goods and services rise (and fall) at different rates. Inflation and deflation measure the average or general tendency of price changes. The prices of some things may fall during periods of inflation even though the prices of the majority of goods and services are rising. During a period of inflation, if prices increase at a faster rate than people’s salaries or wages, people aren’t able to buy as many goods and services.

73  Deflation  A general downward movement in the prices of goods and services in an economy. Although falling prices may seem appealing because people could buy more goods and services with their incomes than they could before, there are reasons to be concerned about deflation. Deflation is often accompanied by falling wages and increasing unemployment. Also, during periods of deflation, debtors have to repay their loans with dollars that are more valuable. So, in essence, debtors have borrowed cheap dollars and are repaying with dollars that will buy more. In addition, consumers and producers who are in debt may suffer; as their incomes drop; their loan payments may remain the same.


75  Unemployment Rate  Represents the number of unemployed as a percentage of the labor force. Civilian, noninstitutional persons 16 years of age or older are classified as unemployed if they do not have jobs, have actively looked for work in the prior four weeks and are currently available for work.


77  Depression  A period of severely declining economic activity spread across the economy (not limited to particular sectors or regions) normally visible in a decline in real GDP, real income, employment, industrial production, wholesale retail credit and the loss of overall confidence in the economy.

78  Bank Reserves  The amount of deposits not loaned out by banks. A bank’s reserves can be calculated by subtracting a bank’s total loans from its total deposits. The United States, along with most of the rest of the world, has a fractional reserve banking system. This means that banks take in deposits and lend most of the money that they take in. The banks keep only a fraction of deposits on reserve. Ordinarily, this system works well, but it does depend on the willingness of people to hold bank deposits.

79  Bank Failures  Occur when banks are unable to meet depositors’ demand for their money. Throughout history, there have been episodes in which too many people have tried to take their money out of their banks at the same time and as a result, banks have failed or suspended operations. Regardless of whether a bank suspends operations for some time or it fails, customers lost confidence.  Bank Run  This occurs when many depositors run into a bank at the same time to get their money out. When a bank run begins at one bank and spreads to other banks, causing people to lose confidence in banks, it is called a bank panic. Bank panic cause more bank failures and the cycle continues.







86  Prosperity during the 1920s did not include all groups in society.  Not all Americans were improving economically.  The overall feeling after WWI was that ‘times were getting better’.

87  Consumer consumption increased  Gross National Product (market value of the goods produced in 1 yr) increased  Amount of trading on stock market increased  President Hoover encouraged competition between businesses as well as voluntary cooperation between labor & management  Had been responsible for managing Food Administration during WWI  These were more obvious to the average American

88  Farmers are hit the hardest:  Expanded productivity to meet demands of WWI (bought more land, equipment, farmed more land) = huge debts  Continued to WWI rates during the 1920s = overproduction = lower prices New equipment was more productive; had to make payments on debts (mortgages, loans, etc)  Surpluses continued but there were no buyers  Late 1920s – drought/weather/etc = lower production  Results in overproduction  Combined this resulted in rural depression  Lack of cash = dependence on credit

89  Uneven distribution of wealth  Industrial workers’ wages increased along with disposable income but wages couldn’t keep up with rising prices Were more productive=more goods to sell=more $$ for rich businessmen (1929-wealthiest 1% of population earned same amount as bottom 42%)  60% of Americans earned <$2000/year; wealthiest earned 50% more Wealthiest did not purchase 50% more of all consumer products  Results in overproduction

90  Credit  Credit was easier to get  More Americans were making purchases on credit=increased debt  Business Cycle  1920s had been the economic expansion portion of cycle Economic peak hit in 1929  Downturns always occur after a peak (not always clear why) & a recession or depression happens

91  Multiplier effect (multiple waves of spending)  Reverse multiplier: when 1 person reduces spending that impacts the income of others 1929 – people lost jobs; stopped buying cars & homes = mild recession Mild recession = unemployment in affected industries = reduced spending overall Farmers have low productivity + high indebtedness  Still believe to be temporary  “Bank Runs” occurred where citizens tried to get their cash out of banks

92  Stock prices increased because people ‘speculated’ (gambled) with $ they didn’t have, hoping to catch a winning stock  Prices became unsteady throughout 1929 (normal) & confidence started to disappear & people started to sell  October 24, 1929 (Black Tuesday)  16 million shares sold, mostly at great loss  Billions of dollars lost  Stocks lost value

93  Does not always mean a depression  When investors expect prosperity=increasing prices & fast recovery  Signals other problems in the economy are pulling it down

94  Complete the chart regarding economic causes of the Great Depression.  On the back, in 15 words (no more, no less), summarize why the US economy collapsed in 1929.


96 Causes Review What areas of the economy were hit the worst? What areas of the economy were hit first? What is the difference between a recession and a depression? How does consumer confidence impact the way and economy recovers?

102  In 1933, when your income decreased, why did the percentage of your income spent on housing and perhaps other items increase?  Because income decreased, even if the dollar amount spent on a category remained constant, the percent of income spent on that category increased.  Raise your hand if your group spent the same dollar amount on food in 1928 as you did in  What tradeoffs did you make in order to feed yourself and/or your family?  How would these spending decisions affect the economy?  Although in your role, you retained your job, one in every four of the workforce was unemployed. What effect did this have on spending?  It decreased spending.  If you were unemployed, what choices might you have had to make?  If you had additional family members come to live with you in 1933, what happened to the income per person-per capita income-for your family?  It decreased.
