    This program explores the 18th Amendment’s text and its drafters. This discussion includes recognition of the feminist constitutional legacy of prohibition and its repeal. This program will also discuss the 18th Amendment’s continuing legacy of misregulation. Drawing on inspiration from sources that include the Crescent City itself, this program explores how some bootleggers, bakers, and others thwarted regulation from 1919 through repeal in 1933, while others faced harsh enforcement on the basis of race, sex, socio-economic status, and other factors. This program contemplates the cultural and economic legacy of prohibition that continues to shape the everyday politics of food and drink in the United States and its Territories.

    A virtual business meeting was held prior to the Annual Meeting.
