Event Details

We’re looking at Boston’s sexual history and how it has- or has not- shaped the city we know today.

Independent scholar Lori Stokes explains how the Puritans might not have been so pure after all. Professor and author Stephanie Schorow takes us back in time to downtown Boston’s adult entertainment district and what used to be known as the Combat Zone.

Join Lori (@MBC1630), Stephanie (@stephschorow), fellow history-loving locals and others for a smarter happy hour - hosted by Edgar B. Herwick III (@ebherwick3) of WGBH’s Curiosity Desk.

You must be at least 21 with a valid ID to attend.

A Smarter Happy Hour

Hear from and connect with local experts in a variety of fields while enjoying the great company of your neighbors from Boston and beyond. Each event combines short speaking programs, drinks, and a chance for you to join the conversation.
