From New York to Los Angeles, and even Johnstown, Pennsylvania, the Mob’s tentacles reached into all corners of North America during the 20th century. Historians continue to explore this rich story to understand what really happened during the Mob’s American heyday. These virtual presentations will feature authors of recently published histories and memoirs.

In a story told largely through photographs, J. Michael Niotta and Avi Bash separate fact from fiction in the murky underworld history of Los Angeles. This program will be available to watch online here, on Facebook Live and YouTube Live. More details coming soon.
