BRIA 23 2 Rights Reconsidered

Bill of Rights in Action

Rights Reconsidered

Throughout history, individual rights have been considered and reconsidered. This edition of Bill of Rights in Action looks at three such cases. The first article examines the historic case of Sacco and Vanzetti, two immigrants tried, convicted, and executed for robbery and murder. The second article looks at Edmund Burke, who disdained the "rights of man," but championed the "rights of Englishmen." The last article explores the case of Mendez v. Westminster, an important forerunner to Brown v. Board of Education.
