The Road From Lincoln to Obama: The Constitution and the New Birth of Freedom

The American Constitution Society, the NAACP LDF, MALDEF, and the Constitutional Accountability Center co-hosted a lunch-time panel discussion this past Wednesday on the "new birth of freedom" that Lincoln spoke of at Gettysburg and the Reconstruction Amendments.  This is a very impressive panel--Mary Frances Berry; Eric Foner; John Payton; John Trasvina; and Doug Kendall--and a stimulating and provocative program.  Check it out--audio and video--here.
