The American Constitution is the first written constitution in the world. How does a review of the Constitution deepen our understanding of American democracy and politics?
Join Dr. Roberta Tansman, former professor of American history at Wellesley College, for a discussion of the relevance of the Constitution today.
Dr. Tansman's expertise focuses on the tumultuous period of the 1780's that led to the debate and writing of the Constitution. In each session participants will read and discuss key articles and amendments of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
Today's Topic: The Bill of Rights
