The United States Constitution has been described as “the hinge point” in world history—the moment when the dominant form of government began to change from monarchy to democracy. Racing toward the 250th anniversary of that transformation, it is worthwhile to note that the Constitution created a new America, but also to ask if it is still a new American constitution. A panel of experts will explore the historical and modern importance of the Constitution to American society, with an emphasis on America’s changing demographic landscape. Moderated by C. Douglas Smith, vice president of James Madison’s Montpelier, speakers include Maria Hinojosa, journalist and founder of FuturoMedia Group; Ramesh Ponnuru, Bloomberg View columnist and senior editor of the National Review; and Khazir Khan, Goldstar Families.
