“All Men Are Created Equal”—Civil Rights

Lecture no. 24 from the course: Experiencing America: A Smithsonian Tour through American History

“All Men Are Created Equal”—Civil Rights

Taught by Professor Richard Kurin | 43 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses

Close the course by returning to the Declaration of Independence and its pledge that “all men are created equal.” Trace the struggle to realize this promise from the turmoil of Reconstruction to a lunch counter in Greensboro, N.C., site of sit-ins during the Civil Rights era, and now on display at—where else?—the Smithsonian.
