This year, we present a special lecture and discussion featuring VCU Department of History Chair John Kneebone, Ph.D., and Professor of Political Science John Aughenbaugh, Ph.D. Kneebone will discuss the historical context for adding the 14th Amendment and subsequent changes to its meaning. Aughenbaugh will discuss amendments and changes to Constitutional meaning. A question-and-answer session will follow the planned talk.

The event is free and open to the public. Parking is available for a fee in the West Broad StreetWest Main Street and West Cary Street parking decks. If special accommodations are needed, or to register offline, please call the VCU Libraries Events Office at (804) 828-1105 prior to Sept. 15.
