The Constitution Project
The Constitution Project is an award-winning educational film series exploring the Constitution — and the stories behind it that continue to shape our country. The series explores the conflicts that have not only formed the Constitution but have influenced how we understand and interpret it.
Episodes of the series cover topics ranging from racial equality to the separation of powers, from judicial review to immigrants’ rights and gender equality. They have traced the passage of a bill through Congress and the White House and explored the role that juries play in our legal system. But most of all they have told the stories of the individuals who have fought to guarantee everyone in America has the rights we enjoy each and every day.
The Constitution Project has been honored with numerous awards, including CINE Masters Series, Special Jury and Golden Eagle Awards; the ABA Coalition for Justice Award; the Silver Hugo Award; the Telly Award; the Clarion Award; the Aegis Award; the Videographer Award; and the Platinum Hermes Creative Award.
The series is a project of the Annenberg Foundation Trust at Sunnylands, created with the assistance of the Annenberg Public Policy Center staff and supervised by Kathleen Hall Jamieson, Program Director of the Trust and Director of the Annenberg Public Policy Center.
