When Freedom Speaks

The First Amendment and freedom of speech are being battled daily. But the First Amendment is not just the written or spoken word, it’s also the freedom of expression. Lynn Greenky started her professional career as a lawyer. Ten years ago Lynn began teaching an undergraduate course about the First Amendment. She was disturbed about the lack of civics education in the U.S. Lynn is the author of When Freedom Speaks: The Boundaries and Boundlessness of Our First Amendment Right.

From the history of the First Amendment – did you know that the first clause is the freedom of religion?…to a place of knowledge instead of hate and anger…listen to my conversation with Lynn Greenky.

‘We need to infuse morality into our speech.’

Lynn Greenky earned a Juris Doctor degree from Emory University School of Law and is admitted to the bar in New York State. Prior to that she received a Bachelor of Science and a Master of Arts in Communication Studies from Northwestern University. She is a teaching professor Emeritus at Syracuse University in the Department of Communication and Rhetorical Studies.
