Overview

Over the past fifty years, Charles L. Black, Jr., has been a powerful voice for the human rights of all. He has been called "a spectacular advocate, but also a towering scholar of constitutional law" (Jack Greenberg, former counsel-general, NAACP Legal Defense Fund). He has changed the way we think about fundamental questions in American law. Black presents a powerful case for reviewing and renewing the basis of our most important human rights. Arguing from the Declaration of Independence and the Ninth and Fourteenth Amendments, he leads readers to a deepened and clarified understanding of what our forbears provided us with, what the Civil War seemed to guarantee us, and how we have lost sight of this great foundation of rights. Following Black's thoughts, we can reclaim the moral center of justice on which our government is based and by which our very being as a nation is justified. A New Birth of Freedom points us in the right direction for beginning this task.
