New-York Historical reopens indoors on Friday, Sept. 11, and visitors will have a chance to view Colonists, Citizens, Constitutions: Creating the American Republic, an exploration of America’s long history of constitutional and civic engagement featuring over 40 books and documents from the collection of Dorothy T. Goldman. Our Public Programs series has often delved into constitutional history over the years, often from surprising and enlightening angles. Enjoy audio recordings of just two below: The first is examination of immigration law with legal experts Cristina Rodriguez, Akhil Reed Amar, and Judge Denny Chin as they also discuss their own families’ immigration stories. And the second is a discussion of legal precedents, protections, and debates surrounding religious liberty with scholars Eddie S. Glaude Jr., Akhil Reed Amar, and Marcia Coyle.
