LINCOLN UNIVERSITY – As part of federal Constitution Day, a variety of volunteers read selections from the U.S. Constitution on Friday in the Pawley Theatre located inside MLK Hall.
According to the U.S. Senate website, the idea to celebrate the Constitution began in 1956 when Congress established Constitution Week, beginning each year on Sept. 17, the date in 1787 when the Constitution was signed. In 2004, the Senate designated Sept. 17 each year as Constitution Day.
