Now Showing @ ALA: The Speaker Other Las Vegas Convention Center
N242
Description :

In 1977, the American Library Association faced a major controversy over a film produced by the ALA Intellectual Freedom Committee. The film, "The Speaker," became the focal point of that year's Annual Conference in Detroit.
Passions rode high as questions over intellectual freedom, censorship, racism, inclusion, and process were debated in membership meetings, on the Council floor, and in the corridors of the conference center.
At this year's conference, the Intellectual Freedom Committee is partnering with LHRT, the Black Caucus of the ALA, and the Association of American Publishers to revisit the controversy and ask what we can learn as our association and profession continues into the 21st century.
Screening this film and allowing for discussion afterward - in conjunction with Monday afternoon's program - will provide a great opportunity to make sure the conversations are as fruitful as possible.
