The reason behind the spike in attendance was the increase in luxury at the movie theaters; they went from original neighborhood buildings, to buildings with comfortable chairs, velvet curtains, and nice carpets. There was a significant change in the…

  • The Civil Rights Movement In Blumberg's Little Rock Nine
