The 14th Amendment, The National Park Service, and America's Second Founding

Thursday, September 29, 2016 - 7:30pm


As part of our Second Founding Project, a joint initiative between CAC and the National Constitution Center, please join us in celebrating the 150th anniversary of the passage of the 14th Amendment! In partnership with the National Park Service, Rep. James Clyburn (SC) will keynote an evening of discussion featuring Michael Allen, Community Partnership Specialist for the National Park Service; Turkiya L. Lowe, Chief of the Cultural Resources Research and Science Branch of the National Park Service; and Professor Kate Masur of Northwestern University. We will explore how the 14th Amendment defines citizenship, its connection to Reconstruction, and how National Park Service sites tell this story.
