Diana Sands (August 22, 1934 – September 21, 1973) was an American actress, perhaps most famous for her portrayal of Beneatha Younger, the sister of Sidney Poitier's character in the original stage and film versions of Lorraine Hansberry's A Raisin in the Sun (1961).
African-American settlers also came West from the Deep South, convinced by promoters of all-black Western towns that prosperity could be found there. Chinese railroad workers further added to the diversity of the region's population. Settlement from the East transformed the Great Plains. The huge herds of American bison that roamed the plains were virtually wiped out, and farmers plowed the natural grasses to plant wheat and other crops. The cattle industry rose in importance as the railroad provided a practical means for getting the cattle to market.
The American Century is a characterization of the period since the middle of the 20th century as being largely dominated by the United States in political, economic, and cultural terms. It is comparable to the description of the period 1815–1914 as Britain's Imperial Century. The United States' influence grew throughout the 20th century, but became especially dominant after the end of World War II, when only two superpowers remained, the United States and the Soviet Union
The 20th century was a turbulent yet fascinating phase in the music industry. From modernism to minimalism, the previous century yielded richness that was shaped by the events that defined the era – war, race, sex, politics and religion each of which shaped the soundtrack of the bygone century. Interestingly, much of the music of the past century is as fascinating as the historical and cultural context of the century. 20th century gave us some ingenious musicians whose compositions have moved us, astonished us, baffled us, made us think, cry and made our hearts soar. So, be it the 1960s heroes ‘the Beatles’ or modern insurgents ‘Eminem’, early pioneers ‘Chuck Berry’ or the bluesmen who made it all possible ‘Howlin' Wolf’, the century has had a surge of inherently talented musicians who were pioneers in their own field and gave the industry its much needed boost.
The 20th Century is the first in history in which the total number of deaths was smaller than the world’s population at the end of the century (see my answer to the question Was 20th century the worst century in human history?), and countless millions were saved from premature deaths in the 20th Century by advances in. medical and other science
Writing from 1914 to 1945. Important movements in drama, poetry, fiction, and criticism took shape in the years before, during, and after World War I. The eventful period that followed the war left its imprint upon books of all kinds. Literary forms of the period were extraordinarily varied, and in drama, poetry, and fiction the leading authors tended toward radical technical experiments.
African American history began with slavery, as white European settlers first brought Africans to the continent to serve as slaves. After the Civil War, the racist legacy of slavery persisted, spurring movements of resistance. Through it all, black leaders, artists and writers would emerge and help shape the character and identity of a nation. Slavery comes to North America, 1619. Many northern states had abolished slavery by the end of the 18th century, but the institution was absolutely vital to the South, where blacks constituted a large minority of the population and the economy relied on the production of crops like tobacco and cotton. Congress outlawed the import of new slaves in 1808, but the slave population in the . nearly tripled over the next 50 years, and by 1860 it had reached nearly 4 million, with more than half living in the cotton–producing states of the South.
Of course, African-American pioneers were facing hurdles that were so much higher than white pioneers. Over and over again I would come across stories about whites arriving in a region to find African-American settlements already there, and sometimes even turning to some of those most successful African-American farmers for help, learning how to farm well in that region, what plants were poisonous, where you could let your hogs run and where you could let your cows. There were two important oppositional struggles going on before the Civil War. One was slavery versus freedom, the other was equality versus inequality.
20th century in literature. This article is about the 20th century in literature. In terms of the Euro-American tradition, the main periods are captured in the bipartite division, Modernist literature and Postmodern literature, flowering from roughly 1900 to 1940 and 1960 to 1990 respectively, divided, as a rule of thumb, by World War II. The somewhat malleable term of contemporary literature is usually applied with a post-1960 cutoff point. Technological advances during the 20th century allowed cheaper production of books, resulting in a significant rise in production of popular literature and trivial literature, comparable to the similar developments in music. The division of "popular literature" and "high literature" in the 20th century is by no means absolute, and various genres such as detectives or science fiction fluctuate between the two.
