This talk, based on Professor Wurman’s book The Second Founding, will explore the nation’s first civil rights struggle that culminated in the adoption of the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, and the surprising meanings of the amendment’s guarantees of due process, the equal protection of the laws, and the privileges and immunities of citizenship.
This event is being recorded and will be available on the Constitutional Law Center’s YouTube page a few days after the event.
