What fascinates me about Speakeasies was the mingling between and relative equality of rich, poor, women, men, black and white. These illicit clubs helped with the momentum and success of civil rights movements. The current Prohibition with its categories of prohibited speech are liable to create a new kind of Speakeasy. I’m curious about what kinds of solidarity movements will emerge from these hidden rooms.
