People That Changed the World Culturally Jazz Age---Louis Armstrong Harlem Renaissance---Langston Hughes Baseball---Babe Ruth Automobile---Henry Ford Airplane---Charles Lindbergh
Jazz Age---Louis Armstrong Louis Armstrong, nicknamed "Satchmo," "Pops" and, later, "Ambassador Satch," was born on August 4, 1901, in New Orleans, Louisiana. An all-star virtuoso, he came to prominence in the 1920s, influencing countless musicians with both his daring trumpet style and unique vocals.
Louis Armstrong Since his death, Armstrong's stature has only continued to grow. In the 1980s and '90s, younger African-American jazz musicians like Wynton Marsalis, Jon Faddis and Nicholas Payton began speaking about Armstrong's importance, both as a musician and a human being. A series of new biographies on Armstrong made his role as a civil rights pioneer abundantly clear and, subsequently, argued for an embrace of his entire career's output, not just the revolutionary recordings from the 1920s.
Langston Hughes Langston Hughes was an American poet, novelist, and playwright whose African-American themes made him a primary contributor to the Harlem Renaissance of the 1920s.
Babe Ruth Legendary baseball player Babe Ruth led the Red Sox to three championships, including the 1916 title which saw him pitch a still- record 13 scoreless innings
