Reconstruction's Legacy: History and Significance of the 14th Amendment,
Thursday, April 19 @ 6 p.m.
The 14th Amendment, enacted in 1868, was designed to secure the freedom of former enslaved Africans and African Americans by guaranteeing them the basic rights of citizenship and insuring equality before the law. It was the cornerstone of Reconstruction and became the foundation for the Civil Rights Movement.

In commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the 14th Amendment, this two-day symposium will bring leading legal scholars and historians together to discuss the Amendment's relevance in today's world.

The symposium will open on Thursday evening, April 19, at Allen University’s Chappelle Auditorium with a keynote address by Harvard professor, Randall Kennedy on the history of the 14th Amendment.
