"The Progressive Movement at the turn of the 20th century was a response to the major social problems left in the wake of the nation's unbridled industrial expansion and the massive influx of new immigrants from Europe. See how Progressive Era reformers sought to gain citizen control over the nation's monopolistic corporations, and witness the success they had improving the lives and working conditions of America's industrial workforce. Viewers will also learn about the suffrage movement, Progressive-era crusaders like Jacob Riis and W.E.B. DuBois, as well as other more radical groups such as the Socialists and the Industrial Workers of the World."--Container.
