History on Tap: From Abolition to the Clubs of Harlem
August 31, 2016 @ 5:30 PM - 6:30 PMFree
Join the National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library and the African American Museum of Iowa at Millstream Brewing Company (835 48th Ave, Amana, IA 52203) for the third History on Tap of 2016!
Special guest Krystal Gladden, Educator at the African American Museum of Iowa, will take a look at how Prohibition impacted the African American community. From the abolitionist movement, to segregation, to the clubs of Harlem, African Americans have fallen on both sides of the argument surrounding Prohibition. One most often thinks of dry states, temperance groups, and bootlegging when it comes to this period in history. We invite you to grab a pint and hear about how booze affected the African American community from the 1840s to the 1930s. These stories will take you beyond the typical tales of Prohibition in the United States.
The event is free, but if you desire some delicious craft beer, that must be purchased from Millstream Brewing Company during the program. Must be 21+ to buy beer.
