Hate Speech and Free Speech: A Discussion

The University of North Alabama hosted a daylong event on Nov. 29 called “Let’s Chat.” It was designed as an opportunity for the campus community to come together and talk about sensitive or difficult topics in a safe environment.


I had the privilege of starting the day with Dr. Katie Owens-Murphy, an assistant professor of English at UNA. We were asked to speak about hate speech and free speech, and we approached the topic from the perspectives of journalism and literature. The video of our introductions and audience Q & A is below, and we made an effort to repeat audience questions for the online audience, too.
