To celebrate the 150th anniversary of the passage of the 14th Amendment, we look at how that amendment defines U.S. citizenship, its connection to America’s “Second Founding” (the passage of the Reconstruction amendments), and the interpretation of these topics at National Park Service sites. Rep. James Clyburn (SC) is the keynote speaker. Elizabeth Wydra will moderate a discussion with Michael Allen, Southeast Region Community Planning Specialist, National Park Service; Dr. Turkiya Lowe, Southeast Region Chief Historian, National Park Service; and Northwestern University Professor Kate Masur. Presented in partnership with the Constitutional Accountability Center and the National Park Service.


Rep. James Clyburn
