Explore history, law, and the pursuit of justice with Professor Bradley Rebeiro’s lecture on Frederick Douglass' remarkable journey from firm critic to fervent defender of the Constitution.

Professor Rebeiro is an associate professor of law at BYU Law School, renowned for his expertise in U.S. constitutional history and comparative constitutional inquiries. In this free virtual lecture, Rebeiro will expand on how Frederick Douglass, once a vocal opponent, came to view the Constitution as a beacon of liberty, despite the harsh realities of slavery and oppression. Discover the transformative power of Douglass' careful study of law and justice, leading him to proclaim the Constitution as a testament to the equality and inherent rights of all individuals. 

Bradley Rebeiro earned a B.A. from Brigham Young University, J.D. from BYU Law, and PhD in Political Science from the University of Notre Dame. Rebeiro’s research ranges from U.S. constitutional history to comparative constitutional inquiries. He has published, and has articles forthcoming, in top journals, such as the Notre Dame Law Review and Brigham Young Law Review. He researches the philosophy of law, as well as the influence of political thought on constitutional jurisprudence. His book manuscript, Natural Rights (Re)Construction: Frederick Douglass and Constitutional Abolitionism, investigates the constitutional thought of Frederick Douglass and its influence in the antebellum period and Reconstruction.
