The Postwar Boom
After WWll many minorities started to demand civil rights. Minorities such as Latino's were inspired the civil rights movements of the African Americans and they developed a deeper political awareness. Many Minorities wanted better treatment which caused more equal rights for everyone. This has forever changed the U.S. and the world around us as other countries then wanted equality as well.
After WWll there was a baby boom which increased the population drastically. As the soldiers returned from war more and more children were born. In 1957 alone there were 4,308,000 children born. This caused one of the largest generations in U.S. history and is significant because now we will need to fill the jobs as the baby boomers retire.
