First Amendment Day 2019

UNC-Chapel Hill will celebrate its 11th annual First Amendment Day on Tuesday, Sept. 24, 2019.

This campus-wide, daylong event is designed to both celebrate the First Amendment and explore its role in the lives of Carolina students. Students and other members of the university community will read from banned books and discuss the public university’s special role as a marketplace of ideas and the need to be tolerant when others exercise their rights.

As always, First Amendment Day is observed during National Banned Books Week.
