Carolina Public Humanities: Prohibition in the US: Hopes and Failures

Carolina Public Humanities: Prohibition in the US: Hopes and Failures

Tuesday 12/3, 6:30 pm

The 18th amendment, which prohibited the manufacture, sale, transportation, or import of alcohol in the United States, was ratified in 1919 and repealed in 1933. This year marks the 100th anniversary of Prohibition in America as well as the 40th anniversary of Carolina Public Humanities. Join us in celebrating the conclusion of our CPH anniversary year with an evening presentation on "Prohibition in the United States: Hopes and Failures" by David Zonderman, Alumni Distinguished Undergraduate Professor and Department Head of History at North Carolina State University. We'll reflect on both the centennial of the Amendment and our own history of humanistic conversations at this end-of-year food and champagne celebration.

$30 per person. Visit humanities.unc.edu for information and registration.
