Revolutionary Story Time! Mumbet's Declaration of Independence

Questions to consider

Did the Declaration of Independence and United States Constitution give all people the same rights?
Did the state constitutions (particularly Massachusetts and New Hampshire) provide the same rights, more, or less than the United States Constitution?
Do rights and responsibilities change over time?
How have people advocated and fought for justice throughout history?
What privileges do I have that others don’t?
