Government Information Exhibits
2019 April Freedom of Speech Display
The Freedom of Speech movement in the 1960s was a landslide civil uprising of thousands of American college students across the nation. Sparked by the ongoing Civil Rights and Anti-Vietnam War movement, the Freedom of Speech movement made a lasting impact on the foundation of our current laws and regulations related to uncensorship of speech. Florida State Libraries dedicated its annual April Government information display to the leaders and innovators of this movement. We have specifically selected titles that tell the stories and triumphs of this movement.
