As the author of the Virginia Declaration of Rights, George Mason was one of the first to call for fundamental human rights. Each year, his home, Gunston Hall, presents the Liberty Lecture Series, which identifies enduring rights principles within present-day society. This year's series will consider traditionally disenfranchised members of American society and how legislation and litigation have defined their rights over time.
All lectures are held at Gunston Hall Plantation on Tuesday evenings in March at 7:30 p.m. Lectures are free.
March 27: "The Court and the Conqueror: The Supreme Court and American Indian Nations" by Dr. Stephen Bragaw.
