First Amendment Day Events @ The Pit

Highlights of banned book readings and “Civil Rights Movement Moves the First Amendment” event, during First Amendment Day at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill on Oct. 1, 2009.

First Amendment Day, a campus-wide, day-long event is designed to both celebrate the First Amendment and explore its role in the lives of Carolina students. Students and others read from banned books, sang banned music and discussed the importance of each of the rights protected by the First Amendment, the need to be tolerant when others exercise their rights and the public university’s special role as a marketplace of ideas.
