Tsai on America's Forgotten Constitutions at the National Archives

Robert L. Tsai, American University, Washington College of Law, discusses his book America’s Forgotten Constitutions: Defiant Visions of Power and Community at the National Archives at noon on Thursday, September 18.  Catch him in person at the William G. McGowan Theater or live via YouTube here.  The National Archives explains, "The U.S. Constitution opens by proclaiming the sovereignty of all citizens: “We the People.” Robert Tsai will discuss the history of alternative constitutions and those who refused to accept the Constitution’s definition of who 'the people' are and how their authority should be exercised. A book signing will follow the program."
