What is the definiton of legislative events?
A legislative event is any event that has something to do with lawmakers and the laws they make.
Would the freedom riders from The COngress of Racial Equality count as a legislative event?
or how about the Brown decision in desegregating schools?
Strictly speaking, the freedom riders would not count as a legislative event. It's possible that the Congress of Racial Equality passed its own "law" to authorize the freedom riders, but that wouldn't be the usual use of this term.
The Brown decision is a legislative event. It was a ruling by the Supreme Court, interpreting the U.S. Constitution. The Constitution is the basis for all of our laws.
