First Thursday Book Talks at All Saints’

Exploring the Lives of our Marginalized Neighbors
Noon to 1 on April 5, 2018 – READING WITH PATRICK by Michelle Kuo
Here’s what we’ll do:
1. Prepare by reading the book.
2. Notice the questions it raises, the questions that you can’t answer.
3. Bring a quote from the book that you find helpful/troubling/important.
4. Join the conversation in the All Saints’ Parlor.

Free Speech and Hate Speech: A Conversation

All Saints’ is hosting a panel discussion on free speech and hate speech in which we will explore the following questions: What limits (if any) are there to free speech? What responsibilities come with free speech? How does hate speech affect our public conversations and life together? How does it influence the lives of our young people, especially in the form of bullying? What are the philosophical and theological underpinnings of responsible speech?
The following persons will comprise our panel, with each panelist speaking for 5-6 minutes: John Van Kleef, J.D. – Attorney at Law, Legal Parameters of Free Speech and Hate Speech
Dr. Chris Housenick – Dept. of Political Science at ATU, The First Amendment and Hate Speech (historical and current context)
Dr. Jay McDaniel – Dept. of Religion at Hendrix College, The Philosophical and Theological Underpinnings of Responsible Speech
Rashad Woods – Dardanelle City Councilman, Hate Speech and Our Common Life
Sheila Jacobs – Principal of Russellville High School, Hate Speech and Our Youth
Following statements from each of our panelists, we will encourage responses and questions for the audience. This discussion will be facilitated by Dr. Sean Huss, Professor of Sociology at ATU.
