When: Thu., April 11, 5 p.m. 2013
Price: Free
50 years after passage of the Speaker Ban, 1965 UNC Student Body President Robert Spearman will recall student efforts to repeal the law. State lawmakers' passage of the ban in June 1963 prevented from speaking on campus known members of the Communist Party & individuals who had invoked their 5th Amendment rights in congressional investigations of Communist activities. Students took a strong stand against the ban.
