ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS, N.J.  — The Monthly Speaker Series from the Atlantic Highlands Historical Society is proud to announce the appearance of Professor Paul J. Cavise for a discussion of the United States Constitution and its first ten amendments.

"The Bill of Rights is a concept that defines the United States of America, and distinguishes it from every other nation" said Professor Cavise. "For over 200 years, we have been trying to interpret the Bill of Rights; and as the amendments evolve, we must continue a dialogue about what each amendment means to us individually and in our daily lives. That conversation first requires that we have a good understanding of the challenges presented today by each amendment,” he said.

Professor Cavise will speak on Wednesday, April 18, 2018, at 7:30 p.m., at the Strauss Mansion Museum at 27 Prospect Circle in Atlantic Highlands.  Admission is free.

“We are delighted to be able to address such a timely and important topic in our 2018 Speakers Series,” said Lynn Fylak, president, Atlantic Highlands Historical Society. “This will be an informal way for Monmouth County residents to understand more about our Bill of Rights.”

This interactive lecture is the second in the series of monthly meetings and lectures held each year at the Strauss Mansion Museum, which is celebrating its 125th anniversary in 2018.
