Title:Simple justice 4 : arguing the Fourteenth Amendment | American experience (Television program). 1993-01-18, Simple justice--excerpts

This video segment from American Experience: "Simple Justice" captures the complexity of the issues before the Court.

Includes a background essay, discussion questions, and alignments to teaching standards.
