Constitution Day Video-Cast: "Free Speech in the Digital Age" 9/16


NPR's Margot Adler will host an hour-long special video-cast from the William G. McGowan Theater at the National Archives. The debate, "Free Speech in the Digital Age," will look at censorship in libraries, of textbooks, and on the Internet.

The program will examine the reasons for both safeguarding and limiting speech, including protection of minors and community safety, ensuring a free marketplace of ideas, and guaranteeing democratic institutions—an excellent way to jump start classroom discussion on First Amendment freedoms.

Guests include: First Amendment Attorney, Floyd Abrams; Past President and CEO of the Motion Picture Association of America, Jack Valenti; and Stanford Law Professor, Lawrence Lessig.

Date: September 16, 2005

Time: 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. (arrive by 1:15 p.m.)

Location: College Hall, room 310
