One-Day Seminar: "Slavery and the Constitution" hosted by Alpine School District (Salt Lake City, UT)

To what extent did the Founders imbue the Constitution with protections for, or structures that stood against the institution of slavery? Was, at its core, the Constitution an anti-slavery document, as Frederick Douglass saw it, or the means to forever enshrine the slavery in American society and government? Study in depth these questions and more through a diverse collection of original documents in a seminar setting.

Lunch will be provided at this free program, as well as a certificate for continuing education. All registrants will receive a copy of the reader, on paper, in advance of the program; and digital copies will be available here after early January 2020.

Registration is closed.
