CANCELLED: WWI at Home: Prohibition, Women’s Suffrage, and the Red Summer

6:00 PM to 7:30 PM
Add to Calendar 09/20/2018 06:00 PM 09/20/2018 07:30 PM America/New_York CANCELLED: WWI at Home: Prohibition, Women’s Suffrage, and the Red Summer

CANCELLED - please visit https://www.kdl.org/events/alert-updated-schedule for more World War One-related programs this fall.


In this lecture series we will discuss the impact on the homefront. This includes the wartime food rationing, the impact of the 1918 flu epidemic (which is also having its centennial unpleasantly enough), national Prohibition of alcohol, and women’s suffrage. This also addresses the violence of the “Red Summer”of 1919, the worst year for racial violence in U.S. history, and then the “Red Scare” that led to the deportation of hundreds of suspected radicals such as anarchists and communists. The nation’s participation in the war was relatively short, but the impact was massive and introduced government into people’s lives in ways we are still dealing with today.
