On September 17, 1787, the last of the delegates to the Constitutional Convention signed the Constitution. Thanks to the dedication of a woman named Louise Leigh, a law was passed on December 8, 2004 (public law 108-447) designating every September 17 as Constitution Day. Constitution Day is dedicated to the study and awareness of this remarkable document that guides our nation. All schools receiving federal funds and all federal agencies are required to provide material and educate students about the Constitution.
To honor this year’s celebration of Constitution Day, Drs. Jean Gabriel Jolivet and John Ackerman of Ashford University’s College of Liberal Arts have written an essay that discusses the contributions of Hispanics with regard to the Constitution and the fight for civil rights.
Happy Constitution Day, America!
