Freedom of Expression: The Never-Ending Fight

March 28 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm


As U.S. Supreme Court Justice Benjamin Cardozo wrote, “Freedom of expression is…the indispensable condition of nearly every other form of freedom.” Two titans in this fight, Ira Glasser, head of the American Civil Liberties Union from 1978 to 2001, and Norman Siegel, director of the New York Civil Liberties Union from 1985 to 2000, reflect on the history and ongoing struggle, and reminisce about their shared Brooklyn roots. Moderated by Jarrett Murphy, executive editor and publisher of City Limits.

Presented in partnership with the Brooklyn Jewish Historical Initiative.
