UNC-Charlotte professor and attorney Ann McColl will discuss the history of North Carolina's current state constitution in a free program, "Constitutional Tales," at 10 a.m. Thursday, April 30, in the N.C. Museum of History.
The multimedia program is presented by the N.C. Office of Archives & History within the N.C. Department of Cultural Resources.
McColl will discuss legal, social and educational changes that resulted from the constitutional revision in 1868, including the extension of voting rights to non-whites and the expansion of public school requirements. Using historical documents, photos and maps, McColl weaves an insightful narrative from biography, law and history.
The museum is located at 5 E. Edenton St. in downtown Raleigh (919-807-7900, www.ncmuseumofhistory.com). For information on the program, contact Cultural Resources at (807-7385) or visit its Website at www.ncculture.com.
