Section 2: Flu Epidemic Grips the Nation
Section 3: Women and African Americans Confront New Realities
African Americans wanted to protect their own kind from lynching and drownings. Whites just disliked African Americans and even burned down 35 city blocks in an African American neighborhood.
Section 4: Inflation Leads to Labor Unrest
Industrial workers also experienced inflation because their wages didn't buy as much food as it did during the war. 20% of the workforce went on strike. They demanded rewards war patriotism, higher wages, and shorter workdays. They didn't receive all their demands but they lost more than they won. Even the police force went on strike at one time in Boston. Most violent strikes were blamed on radical leaders by pro management press.
