The Ninth Amendment

The Ninth Amendment states that “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.” But how do we know what those other rights are? In this video, Khan Academy host Kim Kutz Elliott discusses the Ninth Amendment with scholars Kurt Lash and Jeffrey Rosen.

The National Constitution Center and Khan Academy partnered to create a series of nonpartisan videos explaining the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and major Supreme Court cases, enlisting the expertise of Interactive Constitution scholars.
