New York Times editor Clay Risen brings his newest book, The Bill of the Century: The Epic Battle for the Civil Rights Act, to the National Constitution Center—an in-depth, behind-the-scenes account of the unsung congressional and White House heroes who helped the Civil Rights Act become the law of the land.
A book sale and signing will follow the program.
This program is part of the National Constitution Center’s commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
