Delve deeper into the history of the global progress towards human rights in this ongoing program, which will be pre-recorded for your viewing convenience. We will reflect on each session’s selections by carefully handwriting them for ourselves, learning a little more about their drafting or history, and discussing the ways they have impacted or impeded our collective progress. This month, we will examine the Kouroukan Fouga, the 13th-century constitution of the Mali Empire in Africa. Use your own writing implements and we’ll provide the rest. This program is inspired by artist Morgan O’Hara’s Handwriting the Constitution project. Hosted by Penn Yan Public Library; find all of our video content at https://bit.ly/pyplvids.
