Product Description

This PowerPoint presentation explores several changes taking place in Gilded Age American society. It first examines the rise of immigration restriction looking at arguments in favor of limiting immigration, and then briefly examines efforts to stem the flow of immigrants such as the Chinese Exclusion Act. It then focuses on the reality of life for African Americans in the South. Efforts to deny voting rights are examined, as is the system of Jim Crow. A number of examples of Jim Crow laws are provided, as are some fairly graphic photographs of lynching. Efforts by men like Booker T. Washington and W.E.B DuBois to combat racial inequality are also discussed. Lastly, it briefly looks at changes taking place for women and the growth of the middle class. This presentation is used in an A.P. United States history class and is based in part on Chapter 15 of The American Pageant, 17th Edition.
