ClassGraphic The National Prohibition Act (Volstead Act) of 1919 inaugurated the era of Prohibition. We will be viewing Prohibition, a miniseries by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick. It raises profound questions about the proper role of government and individual rights and responsibilities. This series was produced in 2011 and is arguably not as well-known as some of their more recent works. However, it has the wonderful depth and polish that we have come to associate with Ken Burns. The first three weeks will be film viewing and short discussions, followed by a field trip on the last week to the Frances Willard House Museum in Evanston. Join us!
