Article 19: The Right to Intellectual Freedom
June 5 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
The Right to Intellectual Freedom
Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states, ” You have the right to think what you want, to say what you like and nobody should forbid you from doing so. You should be able to share your ideas also – with people from any country.” What happens when this right is challenged?
The National Center for Civil and Human Rights and Phi Beta Kappa National Honor Society invite you to participate in this community interview with Secretary and CEO of the Phi Beta Kappa Society Fred Lawrence as he discusses the right to intellectual freedom. Other speakers include Georgia First Amendment Foundation President, former CNN VP and Senior Editorial director Richard T. Griffiths and Dr. Ed Lee, Senior Director of the Alben W. Barkely Forum for Debate, Deliberation and Dialogue at Emory University.
