National Constitution Center Virtual Event

Join the National Constitution Center for the virtual town hall "The Crisis of Two Constitutions: The Founders’ vs. The Peoples’."

How should we understand and tell the story of American constitutional development over time? Professors Wilfred Codrington III of Brooklyn Law School and Charles Kesler of Claremont McKenna College discuss the different narratives of that development as explored in their newest books: Codrington's The People’s Constitution: 200 Years, 27 Amendments, and the Promise of a More Perfect Union and Kesler’s Crisis of Two Constitutions: The Rise, Decline, and Recovery of American Greatness. Jeffrey Rosen, president and CEO of the National Constitution Center, moderates.
