Full description: 

Streaming video. "In 1969 the police raided the Stonewall Inn, a gay bar in New York City's Greenwich Village, leading to three nights of rioting by the city's gay community.

Streaming video.  Created Equal:  Constitution USA with Peter Sagal.

"It took three-quarters of a century, and a bloody civil war, before the Fourteenth Amendment of 1868 made equality a constitutional right and gave the federal government the power to enforce it. The far-reaching changes created by that amendment established new notions of citizenship, equal protection, due process and personal liberty. Today, those notions are being used to fight for same-sex marriage, voting rights, affirmative action and immigration reform. In this episode, Peter Sagal learns how the far-reaching changes altered the relationship between the federal government and the states, and meets individuals who have challenged equality laws and affirmative action policies."
