Virtual: The National Archives-Inventing Equality: Reconstructing the Constitution in the Aftermath of the Civil War January 21

He identifies the flaws in the Constitution and, through the role of the Supreme Court and the 13th, 14th, and 15th amendments, explores the ways in which equality and inequality waxed and waned over the decades.
