There were a number of major trends in American culture during this time.  Let us look at a few of the most important.  They include:

Jazz.  This new form of music became popular during this time, symbolizing a changing set of values in American culture.

Harlem Renaissance.  Closely related to this was a surge in African American artistic expression centered around Harlem in New York City.

Changing values.  American culture was coming to revolve more around leisure than ever before.  This new emphasis also helped lead to a loosening of cultural restrictions (typified by the rise of the flappers) on the behavior of women.
