Spirited: Prohibition in America Lecture Series
Lecturer: Dr. David Canton, Ph.D. │ Associate Professor of History & Director of Africana Studies at Connecticut College
The Roaring Twenties were known for a booming economy, flappers, Progressive Reform, and the Harlem Renaissance. For some Americans the twenties roared, and for many others the 1920’s were business as usual. While middle and upper middle class American enjoyed the twenties, they went out of their way to make sure European immigrants and southern black migrants could not. This presentation examines the nexus between Prohibition, race, and crime.
