Offering a fascinating perspective on the evolution of the concept of free speech throughout the nation's history, Shouting Fire: Stories From The Edge of Free Speech examines the balancing act between protecting civil liberties and national security in a post-9/11 world, asking whether all speech is equally free.  This documentary film look at the changing interpretations of the first amendment of the U.S. Constitution – laws and court cases that have alternatively broadened and narrowed the amendment’s protection of free speech and assembly.  Snacks and refreshments will be provided.
