First Amendment & Free Speech
Program #HENN001. Recorded in Boulder, CO on November 01, 1982.
A spirited defense of the First Amendment and in particular connecting it with censorship of student newspapers and their right to free expression. Hentoff approvingly quotes Supreme Court Justice Abe Fortas who says, "Students have fundamental rights and should not be seen as closed circuit recipients of only what the state wishes to communicate.” Hentoff explains why he is a staunch opponent school prayer. He recounts his painful childhood memories of being subjected to Christmas carols. His lecture at Fairview High School is preceded by an interview on KGNU’s Hemispheres program by David Barsamian.
