Whats the definition of the lecompton constitution

Lecompton Constitution, of September 1857 was an instrument framed in Lecompton, Kansas, by Southern pro-slavery activists of Kansas statehood. It contained clauses that protected slave-holding and a bill of rights which excluded free blacks, and it added to the resistances leading up to the U.S. Civil War.
