Book Club With Jeffrey Sachs: Eric Foner, The Second Founding

September 13, 2021

Location: 

Zoom Webinar. Registration Required.

Event Type: 

This month, the Book Club with Jeffrey Sachs will explore “The Second Founding: How the Civil War and Reconstruction Remade the Constitution” by Pulitzer Prize-winner Eric Foner.

In his authoritative history of the United States’ post-Civil War Reconstruction Era, Foner traces the arc of three constitutional amendments from their origins in antebellum activism and adoption amidst intense postwar politics to their virtual nullification by narrow Supreme Court decisions and Jim Crow state laws. Today these amendments remain strong tools for achieving the American ideal of equality, if only we will take them up.
