The Battle Over School Prayer

Join us for a discussion of how a landmark 1962 U.S. Supreme Court case changed America. The Center for Religion, Law & Democracy is pleased to welcome Bruce J. Dierenfield, Professor of History at Canisius College, as he discusses the battle over school prayer and the impact of Engel v. Vitale, the case that said it's unconstitutional for state officials to compose an official school prayer and encourage its recitation in public schools.
