Explore the evolution of Civil Rights laws and constitutional interpretations, from the era of Reconstruction through the mid-20th Century in this one-day seminar. A selection of original documents will serve as the foundation for this discussion, aimed at helping teachers develop a greater understanding of the key laws, court cases, and changes in legal understanding as related to Civil Rights in America. This program is open to all area teachers; however, Austin ISD teachers will receive priority for program placement.
Discussion Leader: Dr. Joshua Dunn, Professor of Political Science at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs
