Describe two ways life has changed for people in the Southeast region since the end of the Civil War.
Most people in the Southeast region now live in cities instead of rural areas. The South moved from an economy based on agriculture to an economy based on industry. Birmingham, Alabama, for instance, was the center of the steel industry in the South for a long time. It is now a leader in medical research and banking.
How did people in the Southeast contribute to the creation of jazz and gospel music?
African American musicians were largely responsible for creating jazz in New Orleans in the early 1900s. The music spread to other U.S. cities Gospel music started in southern black churches. In the 1920s, radio programs began broadcasting the music all over the country. Singer Aretha Franklin also made it popular.
