Life In The 1950’s

Hello Readers,

Life in the 50’s had it’s advantages and disadvantages. Some say it was a simpler time, for others it was a period of great struggle. I found the featured article today interesting. It gives an overview of the general culture of the time period. I hope you enjoy it.

Life in the 1950’s was simple. Some say it was the best time in American History, although I would suggest that could be true for most White Americans but not completely true for Black Americans.

Segregation and racism was still part of life and although there were some major changes to erase both like in 1954, when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled segregation in public schools were unconstitutional, there were still problems forcing blacks to take drastic measures for equality and inclusion like in 1955, when Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on a public bus.
