Carolina Conversations: First Amendment Protected Speech
February 23, 2017 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm
The next Carolina Conversation is focused on First Amendment protected speech. The First Amendment has protected the right to free speech since the passage of the Bill of Rights. But in an age of hate speech, internet trolls and cyberstalking, where do we draw the lines? Mark Merritt, Vice Chancellor and General Counsel, will give an overview of how the courts and the University address this important topic. Moderated by Professor G. Rumay Alexander, Director, Office of Inclusive Excellence, UNC School of Nursing, Special Assistant to the Chancellor and Interim Chief Diversity Officer.
ALL faculty, staff, and students are invited to attend this discussion.
