Conversations with RBG: Book Talk and Signing with Jeffrey Rosen

Date/Time

Nov 6, 2019
06:30 PM until 07:30 PM

Description

Tickets to the live event are sold out, however simulcast tickets are now available.

Join Pulitzer Prize–winning historian Eric Foner for a timely discussion about the history of the battle to inscribe equality into the Constitution. The Declaration of Independence declared the truth of equality to be self-evident, but it took the Civil War and the adoption of three constitutional amendments to establish that ideal as part of our fundamental law.  Foner will trace the arc of the Reconstruction amendments from their dramatic pre-Civil War origins to today. Jeffrey Rosen, president and CEO of the National Constitution Center, moderates.

A book sale and signing will follow the program.

This program is presented in conjunction with the Center’s exhibit Civil War and Reconstruction: The Battle for Freedom and Equality.
