Much the opposite, a growing tide of political conservatism in the presidency led many to retreat to the "lost" cafes of Paris, and the enclaves of Harlem, where the black experience recorded their quest for the American Dream. The history, politics, literature, cinema and cultural trends of this decade illustrate how the American spirit could evolve from the traumas of World War I, to celebrate a new "roaring" American spirit.
