Signe Wilkinson & Jonathan Zimmerman – Event

Thursday, April 1, 2021
7:30 PM – 8:30 PM EDT
4:30 PM – 5:30 PM PDT

Author/scholar Jonathan Zimmerman and illustrator/cartoonist Signe Wilkinson have teamed up to produce Free Speech and Why You Should Give A Damn.

The pair will join cartoon editor Bob Mankoff for a conversation about

[the] history of free speech in the U.S. and a case for its renewed importance amidst contemporary attacks on the First Amendment-with cartoons!

Across the political spectrum, throughout history, the U.S. public has demanded the suppression of ideas and images that allegedly threaten our nation. However, the biggest danger comes not from speech but from censorship. In their new book, Jonathan Zimmerman and Signe Wilkinson chart the history of free speech in the U.S. and argue for its renewed importance amidst contemporary challenges to the First Amendment.
