Week of March 22

Part lecture and part lively conversation, our LIVE online classes are open to the public so that students, teachers, and parents can join in a constitutional discussion with NCC scholars.

In this session, students explore the 14th Amendment and the battles for equality in America. The class examines the clauses of the 14th Amendment and the battle over their meaning from Reconstruction to the Supreme Court’s landmark decision on marriage equality in Obergefell. This session will explore the America’s first and second civil rights movements, the Constitution and women, and modern interpretations of the 14th Amendment.
