Constitution Day: Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Legacy of Dissent
September 17, 2019 @ 12:30 pm - 1:45 pm
Dr. Katie Gibson The Center for First Amendment Studies invites you to attend California State University, Long Beach’s annual Constitution Day event. This year, Dr. Katie Gibson will join us to talk about her recent award winning book Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Legacy of Dissent. Dr. Gibson is an accomplished scholar, and an expert in the rhetoric of dissent. In her recent book, she examines how Justice Ginsburg’s voice of dissent has “reshaped how the Constitution speaks to gender equality and has carved out a space for citizens who are often excluded and silenced by the traditional voice of law.” Dr. Gibson traces how Justice Ginsburg emerged as “one of the most skilled and significant voices in the history of American rhetoric.” Please join us for a conversation in observance of Constitution Day.
