Legal historian Paul Finkelman and Harvard law Professor Randall Kennedy presented talks on the role of the U.S. Supreme Court in the Reconstruction era. Paul Finkelman detailed why he believes that the Supreme Court, “sabotaged Reconstruction,” and Professor Kennedy discussed the 1875 Civil Rights Act and an 1883 court decision that invalidated public accommodation sections of the law. This program is part of two-day symposium on Reconstruction hosted by the U.S. Capitol Historical Society. close
