The 1920s were an age of dramatic social and political change. For the first time, more Americans lived in cities than on farms. The nation’s total wealth more than doubled between 1920 and 1929 allowing the rise of a “consumer culture”.

Politically, the country moved from Wilson’s moralism to Harding and the Teapot Dome Scandal to Calvin Coolidge to Herbert Hoover and the stock market crash in October 1929.

Eugene Lieber will touch on all these historic events as well as the impact of the automobile, changes in entertainment and sports as well as race relations and the evolution of economic policy. If you enjoy history, this two-part series is a must!
