Motion pictures, like the radio, encouraged the breakdown between rural and urban life. Movies pushed Americans closer to a national community with a set of shared experiences. A major transformation in the movies, however, took place in the 1920s. Silent films gave way to “talkies.” Visit the tenant house to discuss the changes in the movie experience and the impact of the movies on rural life. FREE with park admission. 12:00pm-3:00pm.
