The Rights and Limits of Free Speech | Center for Brooklyn History Talk

February 8, 2021 @ 6:30 pm

In the wake of the lies told at the January 6 rally that resulted in the assault on our nation’s Capitol building, Ian Rosenberg’s new book “The Fight for Free Speech” provides an urgent perspective on the limits and protections of the First Amendment. From taking a knee to Nazi protests, from MAGA rallies to social media bans, our democracy is engaged in an ever-evolving process to thread a needle between free expression and protection of our basic liberties. Rosenberg discusses the scope and limits of our right to free speech through the case history in his book, and what the future may hold for freedom of expression in these charged times. Former long-time ABC News correspondent and Pulitzer Prize finalist John Donvan leads the discussion which CBH is pleased to present on the eve of the book’s release.
