Constitution Day – Sept. 17

JSCC Professor to Discuss the Establishment Clause at Constitution Day Event

Diana Fordham, assistant professor of history, will present a Constitution Day lecture at 12:15 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 17 in the Science Auditorium. The topic of the lecture will be the establishment clause of the Constitution.

Constitution Day (or Citizenship Day) is an American federal holiday that recognizes the ratification of the United States Constitution, and also recognizes all who have become citizens due to either coming of age or naturalization. It is observed on September 17, the day the U.S. Constitutional Convention signed the Constitution in 1787. The law establishing the holiday was created in 2004 with the passage of an amendment by Senator Robert Byrd to the Omnibus spending bill of 2004. Before this law was enacted, the holiday was known as ‘Citizenship Day’.
