Reading the Declaration of Sentiments | A Primary Source Close Read w/BRI

In this primary source close reading, Bill of Rights Institute Senior Teaching Fellow Tony Williams is joined by special guest, Emily Krichbaum, a history teacher at Columbus School for Girls, a former professor at Ashland University, and a scholar-reviewer for BRI's Women’s Suffrage curriculum. Tony and Emily take a closer look at the Declaration of Sentiments, signed in 1848 at the Seneca Falls Convention. How does this document relate to constitutional principles and civic virtues such as civil rights, liberty, equality, and justice? How does it apply today?
