Grading the Framers: What the Constitution Got Right and What it Got Wrong
- at -
1:00-1:40 p.m. ET
Join Pulitzer Prize-nominated historian and author Bill Brands to discuss the impact of decisions made by the Constitutional framers -- both then and now.
Pulitzer Prize-nominated historian and author Bill Brands will address the historical impact of decisions made by 18th century Constitutional framers and how the Constitution and decisions made then, impact present day society.
He will also explore ways that the Legislative and Executive branches continue to pass legislation that requires interpretation of the Constitution by the Judicial branch.
While there is no way to predict the future, he will demonstrate the ways in which the writers framed personal and civil liberties and the rule of law that continue to be relevant to issues that were unforeseen by our nations’ founders.
