TO ESTABLISH JUSTICE ; CITIZENSHIP
New York : Knopf, 2004.
does it mean to be a citizen? Should all citizens of the United States
be treated equally? Do all citizens have equal rights? Who
is responsible for making sure that these rights are protected? The
answers might surprise you. Back in the 18th century when the United
States was born, citizenship was denied to many groups including women
and African Americans. They were not considered citizens and had
limited, if any, rights. How did that change? Who has the power
to change the laws of the land to extend rights to all? And, what
about today? Do all groups have equal rights? Can you think
of a group that is denied rights based on who they are? This is the
history of citizenship and the struggle for a definition.
