CC ’73: Revisiting the 1973 Louisiana Constitutional Convent

  • Aired: 12/12/2013
  • 59:56
  • Rating: NR
On Jan. 5, 1973, 132 men and women gathered in Baton Rouge to begin the work of rewriting Louisiana's antiquated 1921 constitution. They would complete their work a year later on Jan. 16, 1974. They presented the voters with the constitution we now have today. Forty years later, we feature a conversation with several of the leaders and delegates of that constitutional convention.
