Sasha White speaks with Baher Azmy. Baher is the Legal Director of the Center for Constitutional Rights, where he has litigated cases related to discriminatory policing practices (stop and frisk), government surveillance, the rights of Guantanamo detainees, rights of asylum seekers, and accountability for victims of torture.
Baher joins me in this episode to discuss the history and values of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. What are the legal and ethical limits of free speech? What is the value of free speech in a democracy? We talk about these and other questions in this in-depth conversation.
