Voices of Democracy: Race, Gender and Equality

From the 17th century on, the realities of racial and gender inequality have been at odds with America’s self-understanding as a “new world” of opportunity for all. How do we describe and analyze the intersections and connections between race, gender, religion, justice, and liberty? What do they reveal about the political engagement of women and how does that influence the discussion of constitutional interpretation and of human equality? This seminar will focus on key moments in the struggle to secure the natural rights of liberty and equality for all Americans.

This program will be conducted as a Socratic discussion, utilizing primary source documents as the only readings, and with the Discussion Leader facilitating the conversation, instead of lecturing or presenting. Registrants, therefore, are highly encouraged to read all the documents in advance and come ready with with questions. All attendees will receive a Letter of Attendance at the end of the seminar.
