This program looks back 100 years to the decade of 1921-1930. Those years saw the first Ford Model A, the historic flight of Charles Lindbergh, and the first roadside lodging to call itself a "Mo-tel." Gandhi is imprisoned in India for sedition, and Hitler goes to jail for a failed coup. It is a turbulent time for race relations, with the destruction of Tulsa’s Black Wall Street and the torching of Rosewood, Florida by the Ku Klux Klan. It is the era of National Prohibition, the boom of the Roaring Twenties, and the bust of Black Friday and the start of the Great Depression
We see that times and technology change, but people and their decisions resonate over time. This program brings us back to that time so long ago that sheds light on our current culture, in both our progress and our continued challenges.
