Paine & American Democratic Reform

Thomas Paine and American Democratic Reform

 

Did you know that when the Constitution of the United States was ratified in 1789 only 17% of white male property owners could vote? Universal white male suffrage came about 1842. Women didn't get the vote until 1922 and Americans of African ancestry not until the late 1960s. Historian and author Dr. Kenneth Burchell will present the fascinating, important and largely untold history of American democratic reform and lead a discussion and question time after his presentation.
