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 Judge Douglas H. Ginsburg – a national authority on the Constitution, with 30 years of experience on the federal appeals court in Washington, D.C. 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 2nd amendment, separation of powers, and more. Judge Ginsburg will introduce a special 90-minute compilation of the series and take audience questions.
