Hamilton-Williams Campus Center | Benes Room B

Barbara Terzian, J.D., Ph.D., OWU professor of history, presents “Notable and Notorious: Ohio and the 14th Amendment,” in Benes Room B of Hamilton-Williams Campus Center, 40 Rowland Ave., Delaware.

Did you know the Bill of Rights didn’t apply to the States? It took the 14th Amendment to protect free speech, religion, fair trials, and equal employment opportunities. To celebrate the amendment’s 150th birthday, Terzian, a civil rights attorney and historian, will explain its origins, its profound impact on our 21st century lives, and Ohio’s distinctive relationship to it – both notable and notorious.

Her presentation is OWU’s 2018 Joseph and Edith Vogel Lecture sponsored by the Department of History. Admission is free. Learn more at www.owu.edu/history.
