Spirited: Prohibition in America exhibit closes, Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center
The Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center will host a new traveling exhibit, Spirited: Prohibition in America, from June 16 to August 11. Organized by the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in partnership with Mid-America Arts Alliance of Kansas City, Missouri, Spirited: Prohibition in America explores the era of prohibition when America went “dry.”
Visitors will learn about the complex issues that led America to adopt prohibition through the Eighteenth Amendment to the Constitution in 1919 until its repeal through the Twenty-first Amendment in 1933. The exhibition describes the amendment process, the changing role of liquor in American culture, prohibition’s impact on the roaring ’20s, the role of women, and how current liquor laws vary from state to state.
The Cherokee Strip Regional Heritage Center is located at 507 S. Fourth Street in Enid, Oklahoma. For more information, please call 580-237-1907 or visit www.csrhc.org.
