Taking ‘a Chronological Romp’ Through State Constitutions

"The foreword for the catalog for “Colonists, Citizens, Constitutions” was written by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg of the Supreme Court, who died in September.
In the foreword, Justice Ginsburg notes that “original Constitutions permitted slavery and severely limited who counted among ‘We the People.’” Although much of that changed as a result of amendments and court decisions — what she calls “huge progress” — “the work of perfection is scarcely done,” she writes. “Many stains remain.”
The exhibition also demonstrates that the road to perfection is not necessarily linear." - Exhibition review, The New York Times
