How Corporations Won Rights Meant for “We The People…”

Although corporations never marched on Washington, they employed many of the same strategies of many civil rights struggles: civil disobedience, test cases, and legal claims made in a purposeful effort to reshape the law.

 

Adam Winkler, author of “We The Corporations: How American Businesses Won Their Civil Rights,” joins host Mitch Jeserich in conversation about the history of corporations and how corporations have used the courts to win rights made for everyday people. Adam Winkler is a historian and law professor, specializing in American Constitutional Law.
