Scholars Bruce Ackerman, Tomiko Brown-Nagin, and Steven Calabresi discuss how the civil rights movement amounted to a genuine revolution in constitutional law, focusing on the landmark statutes of the 1960s: the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Voting Rights Act of 1965, and the Fair Housing Act of 1968. The conversation focuses on Ackerman's newest book, We the People, Volume 3: The Civil Rights Revolution, the second to last volume of his sweeping interpretation of constitutional history.
