Limited Capacity seats available

We are inundated with discussion about Freedom of Speech across party lines, with so many Americans interpreting—and taking ownership of—the First Amendment in immensely varied ways. What does FDR’s Freedom of Speech and Expression mean now for us? In partnership with CAAM, IDEA (Institute for Diversity & Empowerment at Annenberg) and the University of Southern California’s RAP (Race, Arts, & Placemaking) Initiative, we will unite artists and activists to discuss Freedom of Speech in anticipation of the 2020 Presidential Election. Featured speakers include Sabra Williams, Melina Abdullah, Edna Chavez, Maggie Wheeler and Emile Hassan Dyer with members of The Golden Bridge Choir. Presented by Sankofa.org.
