African-American flappers - in fur and silk stockings
Flapper in the 1920s was a term applied to a 'new breed'
of young Western women who wore short skirts,bobbed
their hair, listened to jazz, and flaunted their disdain for
what was then considered acceptable behavior. Flappers
were seen as brash for wearing excessive makeup, drinking,
treating sex in a causual manner, smoking, driving automobiles
and otherwise flouting social and sexual norms
