In part five of our series #1AUSA – conversations on the First Amendment’s past, present, and future, from the National Conference on the First Amendment at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh – NCC President Jeff Rosen sits down with college presidents David A. Thomas of Morehouse College, Robert Zimmer of the University of Chicago, and Teresa Sullivan, president emerita of the University of Virginia. Sullivan shares the challenges of serving as president during the “Unite the Right” protests in Charlottesville, and all three presidents discuss their efforts to foster free speech and intellectual diversity on their campuses. Later, you’ll hear from a panel of journalists who have reported in foreign countries. They share stories of the sometimes life-threatening situations they and their colleagues face, and of the disparities in press freedom around the world. The emcee you’ll hear from later on is Joy McNally.
