Presented by the Lifelong Learning Institute, Manassas

The U.S. Constitution is the oldest national constitution in existence. However, it has required some changes. Join us as we look at the amendments to the U.S. Constitution ranging from the first ten of the Bill of Rights to the 27th that was ratified in 1992. We will look at the modern-day implications of the amendments on our lives and examine some of the court cases that explain what the amendments mean.

She received her undergraduate degree in history from Duke University and her master’s degree in history from the University of Tulsa.
