    • We should care because it was the begining of organized crime, such as the mafia, in America.
  • Decade it occured
    • The prohibition lasted from 1920 to 1933. During that time, Jazz became popular because it was commonly played in speakeasies where some racial barriers were also broken down because both blacks and whites needed alcohol.

  • People involved
    • After prohibition was voted in the police really cracked down on all producers of alcohol and speakesies, both of which existed because a lot of people still needed alcohol. In response to the need for illegal alcohol, The American Mafia was born to mave the alcohol and commit other alcohol related crimes.
  • What happened
    • People still needed alcohol so they went to speakeasies, where they drank illegal alcohol, which was made by booteleggers, transported by the mafia, and policed by the cops every step of the way.
