Bootleggers flooded Florida with illegal booze, flappers danced to jazz, and workers erected suburban bungalow homes in Florida suburbs. At the same time, Florida’s Jim Crow system was violently enforced, and a charismatic Christian religious revival movement swept the state. Join the Tampa Bay History Center’s Brad Massey and Rodney Kite-Powell for a look at these happenings and others that catapulted Florida into the modern era in the 1920s.
Brad Massey, Ph.D., and Rodney Kite-Powell present Florida Conversations: Florida in the 1920s at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 15. Registration is required.
