Culture Wars in America: from the 1920s to today Lecture

There is a long history of culture wars in the United States. In the 1920s, Americans were split on the issue of creationism versus evolution and social conservatives regularly attacked liberal lifestyles. In the 1960s, Americans were divided over Cold War policies, Vietnam, Black Civil Rights, and feminism. America’s current culture wars are driven by issues such as abortion, gay rights, Obamacare, gun control and the war on drugs. Learn more about the history of culture wars in the United States and why the politics of discord seem to be such a regular feature of modern American society.
