Hate: Why We Should Resist it With Free Speech Not Censorship with Nadine Strossen

Date/Time

Sep 26, 2018
07:00 PM until 08:30 PM

Description

In her new book, HATE: Why We Should Resist it With Free Speech Not Censorship, Nadine Strossen argues that expanding free speech, not limiting it, is the solution for changing the hearts and minds of those who espouse hateful ideologies. We must tolerate all speech even when it supports intolerance, or we may find we've given away our own right to speak against it. 

Nadine Strossen is a renowned public speaker, committed to the freedoms enshrined in the Constitution. She was the president of the ACLU from 1991-2008 and is also a professor of Law at New York Law School. She dedicates this talk to the memory of her dear friend, Mary Rindfleisch. 

This program is co-sponsored by Books on the Common, Ridgefield Historical Society, Keeler Tavern Museum and History Center and the Library.
