Conversations on the Constitution: Government Speech and the Confederate Flag

Tuesday, September 15 – 5:30-7:30pm

Cohen Center Ballroom

At this year’s Constitution Day panel, we will focus on government speech and the Confederate flag, using a recent Supreme Court case over license plates (Walker v. Texas Division, Sons of Confederate Veterans) and the controversy over the flag at the South Carolina state capitol as jumping-off points.  An interdisciplinary faculty panel will share their thoughts and students will be invited to voice their comments and questions in an open forum.
