ClassGraphic Danielle Allen’s Our Declaration: A Reading of the Declaration of Independence in Defense of Equality, a book that brings a provocative perspective to one of the most studied texts in U.S. history, is Northwestern University’s One Book One Northwestern all-campus read for the 2017–18 academic year. The book begins with a detailed review of the drafting, editing, and approval of this historic document in sufficient detail to provide valuable insight to even the most serious students of our nation’s founding documents. It follows with a thorough review of what the document says, the author’s intents, and the meaning we should take from this document. The author argues effectively that the document is a relevant call to equality today. Join us for the study group, and join Northwestern (and OLLI) for a series of activities throughout the spring based on the ideas in this book. Note: This study group meets for 10 weeks: March 6–May 8
