AN OCCASIONAL COMPILATION OF FREE INTELLECTUAL AND CULTURAL EVENTS easily available to us in Cleveland Park.
How fortunate we are that so many outstanding cultural events are not only free, but are also relatively easily accessible by bus and metro. In continuing to list these events I depend primarily on four venues: Politics and Prose Bookstore, the Library of Congress, the National Archives and films at the National Gallery of Art.
A More or Less Perfect Union (2020) explores the most contentious issues in American history and today through the lens of the U.S. Constitution. The groundbreaking three-part public television series tells the story of how the framers put freedom in writing; how amendment after amendment finally spread freedom to all of “we the people,” and how we still struggle today to preserve the freedoms guaranteed in the Constitution. Hosted by U.S. Court of Appeals JudgeDouglas H. Ginsburg—a national authority on the Constitution, with 30 years of experience on the Federal appeals court in Washington, DC. Throughout the series, experts of all stripes—conservative, progressive, and libertarian—debate key issues of liberty: freedom of religion and press, slavery, civil rights, the Second Amendment, separation of powers, and more. Following the screening of episode one of the series, Judge Ginsburg will be joined by Professor Hadley Arkes, , Edward N. Ney Professor of Jurisprudence and American Institutions emeritus at Amherst College, to discuss the series and take audience questions.
