Prohibition: Part 2
On Wednesday's program, we continue our month-long weekly series focused on filmmaker Ken Burns’s latest documentary, "Prohibition.”  The program will air in October on WHRO-TV and tells the history of the rise and fall of the 18th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.  The saga of prohibition goes far beyond the oft-told tales of gangsters, rum runners, flappers and speakeasies.  It is the story of unintended consequences and a nation divided by politics, religion, and individual rights and responsibilities. 

Scheduled Guests:
Pam Rickard
- Regional Liaison & Alumni Coordinator for The Farley Center at Williamsburg Place

Dr. Robert J. Ackerman - Professor of Sociology and Director of the Mid- Atlantic Addiction Training Institute at Indiana University of Pennsylvania and a co- founder of the National Association for Children of Alcoholics.
