RJT Library Celebrates Constitution Day

The Robert J. Terry Library invites the campus and surrounding community to celebrate Constitution and Citizenship Day on Thursday, September 17, 2015.  The commemoration will take place in the Exhibit Room on the first floor of the Terry Library.  The Library will take this opportunity to introduce the campus to a comprehensive digital database called Ambrose Digital.  The library currently has a 30 day trial subscription and would like feedback from members of the campus community as to whether we should consider subscribing to this service permanently.  Ambrose Digital is a multi-disciplinary database that covers a wide variety of subject areas the majority of which are covered in TSU’s diverse curriculum.

Ambrose Digital has a very thorough presentation regarding the U. S. Constitution that covers its evolution from prior to its ratification up to the present day.  At 10 a.m. there will be a program where the role of The Constitution in the collective lives of African Americans is discussed in both a historical and contemporary context.  The discussion will briefly cover the African American involvement with the Constitution from the 3/5th clause to Black Lives Matter.

The remainder of the day will feature various chapters on the Constitution that are included on Ambrose Digital.
