Here’s Professor Akhil Reed Amar of Yale University speaking on how Andrew Jackson’s presidency affected our understanding of the Constitution.
The video’s description reads, “Professor Akhil Reed Amar talked about how the presidency of Andrew Jackson transformed the Constitution in ways that still apply. He responded to questions from members of the audience. ‘Our Jacksonian Constitution’ was a program of the ‘Teach-In on America’s Founding’ held February 27, 2012, by the Institute for the American Constitutional Heritage in the Paul F. Sharp Concert Hall. This was the University of Oklahoma’s inaugural ‘Teach-In, A Day with Some of the Greatest Teachers in America.’ ”
His lecture is pretty technical, but packed with great information. Professor Amar is quite possibly our top constitutional scholar today.
