Post War Tension and Triumph Unit 19
This unit examines the tensions of the Cold War era, reflected in
divergent dichotomies: a growing suburban, white, middle-class and
increasingly ghettoized blacks and Latinos; a faith in scientific
progress contrasted with a fear of the bomb; and an idealization of
individualism tempered by an anti-Communist call for conformity.
Individuals and groups raised their expectations for equality as
veterans returned from the global conflict of World War II.
