The TwentiesStreaming Video - 2010
Conventional wisdom enshrines the 1920s as the decade that roared-a time in which Americans kicked up their heels to the Charleston and went for one long joyride before the Wall Street crash of 1929. As this Bill Moyers program illustrates, those things did happen, but so did many others-not all of them fondly remembered. Nineteen Americans who lived through those years talk about their lives in the 1920s. From labor strikes to the Scopes trial to the executions of Sacco and Vanzetti. from poverty to racial segregation to political scandals. Moyers and his guests reveal the complex realities behind the glitter of the times.
