Protest: As American As Apple Pie - Panel
From Jeffrey Sudduth on February 12th, 2018
Co-Sponsored by UIS Diversity Center
Protest is as American as apple pie, baseball, rock and roll, and Broadway. From the Boston Tea Party to the national anthem kneel, protest has been a part of America since its founding. Protest has been used in various ways throughout history and has served different functions. This interdisciplinary panel of UIS faculty will explore American protest from historical, legal, and social perspectives. These lenses will serve to contextualize modern protest movements, including the benefit they provide for all citizens.
