Freedom Knew No Restraint: Political Barbecues and the Anti-Barbeque Movement in Madison County

October 28, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:15 pm

Free

OLLI at UA presents Freedom Which Knew No Restraint: Political Barbecues and the Anti-Barbeque Movement in Madison County. During the early 19th century, the nation was at a crossroads between an old worldview and a new one based on democracy, individual liberty and freedom. In the new state of Alabama, there was a perfect scenario for conflict and the old world transitioned to the new one. In Madison County, especially, people struggled over the type of society they wanted to create, and debated everything about this new emerging world order, including the role of barbecue, in the political process. Join us as Dr. Mark Johnson unpacks this interesting story. All OLLI classes thru Zoom. Not familiar with Zoom? No worries; free basic training is offered. This session is free, but pre-registration is required for a link to the class. Call 205-348-6482 or olli.ua.edu.
