Reconstruction and the U.S. Supreme Court Professor Michael Ross talked about the role of the Supreme Court during Reconstruction. He spoke about the tensions between President Andrew Johnson and the Republican-controlled Congress, the short-lived period of Southern black legislatures, and how hate groups such as the Ku Klux Klan used the 14th Amendment to promote white supremacy. He was introduced by Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy.

This speech was one in a series of four on Reconstruction hosted by the Supreme Court Historical Society. close
