Hate Speech and Free Speech in America today

Race in the Public Dialogue: Hate Speech and Free Speech in the Time of Trump


Randall L. Kennedy (Michael R. Klein Professor at Harvard Law School), Maya Wiley (Henry Cohen Professor of Public and Urban Policy at The New School’s Milano School of Policy, Management, and Environment), and Nina McConigley (Assistant Professor at the University of Wyoming and Fiction Writer) discuss the state of free speech in a political and cultural climate of deep divisions and heightened polarization. Has hate speech become ubiquitous as hate crimes are on the rise? Must free speech be at odds with anti-racism and inclusion? How do we protect the right to freely express and debate opposing views when Americans are more and more divided? How do we (re)build a common ground?
