Pultizer Prize-winning historian Eric Foner tells the story of the battle to inscribe equality into the Constitution.

He sits down with National Constitution Center President Jeffrey Rosen.

This program was presented in conjunction with the Center’s exhibit Civil War and Reconstruction: The Battle for Freedom and Equality.
