    Join the First Amendment Museum for a free, virtual event on Thursday, April 14th at 7 pm on Zoom as they host artist Linda Vallejo.

    She will be describing her new exhibit “Brown Belongings”, which represents ten years of concentrated work on visualizing what it means to be a person of color in the United States. These works reflect what she calls her “brown intellectual property”—the experiences, knowledge, and feelings she has gathered over more than four decades of study in Chicano/a and American indigenous communities.

    Join our free, virtual Speaker Series event on Wednesday, March 2nd at 12:30 pm ET!

    Free speech around the world today is in retreat. Authoritarian and nationalist figures from Narendra Modi in India to Viktor Orbán in Hungary are silencing dissenting voices in an effort to entrench power.

    Even in democracies, where it is hailed as the “first freedom” and a bedrock democratic value, the free speech debate is weaponized by the political left and right, as different groups aim to curtail it on college campuses, in classrooms, and on digital platforms — undermining the very culture of tolerance and open-mindedness on which this freedom ultimately depends.

    Join author Jacob Mchangama for a conversation on the global history of free speech, from the ancient world to today. Register at https://firstamendmentmuseum.org/event/free-speech-a-history-from-socrates-to-social-media/
