posted in: Blog, Premium Podcast | 0

In this third installment of The American 1890’s History audio scrapbook we look at a number of modern issues that bubbled up in the Mauve Decade,  including: police violence and Indian rights, women’s rights, mental health, African American rights and an African American bicycle champion, homosexuality.  We also look at numerous attempts to put humans in the air in a controlled fashion, in a decade that wouldn’t see it work out but sure tried.
